Custodians must accept written OPRA requests not submitted on official form

In a published decision released today, the Appellate Division ruled that while a custodian's official OPRA request form "should": be used, no written request for information "should be rejected" if the official form is not used. The decision is on-line here. (Renna v. County of Union, Appellate Docket No. A-0821-07T2)

The ruling resolves a long-standing problem that is set forth in detail in my blog entry here.
