Unpublished trial court OPRA opinion.

Unpublished opinions" are not published in the law books and are not ordinarily written about in legal periodicals.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 I think that it's important that court opinions, even if they are not precedential, are easily accessible for future use.

Summary:  An inmate serving a life sentence for murder is precluded from filing any more OPRA lawsuits without prior approval from the court because the inmate has demonstrated a pattern of filing frivolous and baseless OPRA lawsuits.  I have been informed that this case is currently under appeal.
