Last year Governor signed P.L. 2020, c. 125, which prohibits disclosure of active, formerly active, and retired judicial officers, prosecutors, and law enforcement officers’ home addresses, both primary and secondary. The well-intended law is fraught with implementation challenges. To address those challenges, legislation (A-6171/S-4219), which would create an Office of Information Privacy to streamline the process, has been introduced and is fast-tracked. A-6171 is before the full Assembly on Monday and the Senate companion is awaiting consideration by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Please see our recent blog post for more information on this legislation, which the League supports.
