Two new unpublished trial court OPRA opinions

These opinions are not published in the law books and are not ordinarily written about in legal periodicals. Unless somebody puts them on-line and calls attention to them, they are likely not to be located by people who may want to search for them. I think that it's important that court opinions, even if they are not precedential, are easily accessible for future use.

I have converted the scanned opinions to searchable text versions. Links to the scans are contained within the footers to the live documents.
