OPRA hearing tomorrow in Belvidere

On Friday, June 14, 2013 at 9:30 a.m., Warren County Superior Court Judge Amy O'Connor will hear argument in the case of Paff v. Warren County Prosecutor, Docket No. WRN-L-34-13.  My complaint, certification and brief in this case, filed by the Law Office of Walter M. Luers, are on-line here

At issue is an investigation of an incident, shortly after Hurricane Sandy, in which an employee of the Warren County Jail used a county-owned generator for his or her own personal use.  The County Prosecutor, who declined to seek criminal charges against the employee, provided me with some investigative documents from which the employee's name was redacted.  I believe that the public is entitled to know the employee's identity.

The public is invited to attend and observe tomorrow's hearing.  It will be held at the Courthouse, 413 2nd Street, Belvidere.
