Open Government Advocacy Project:
Do two OPRA requests constitute harassment?
 

Issue Detail:

 
At the May 10, 2011 Runnemede (Camden County) Board of Education executive session, Board Attorney Philip Stern said that he would contact me and another citizen \"requesting that [we] cease and desist [filing OPRA requests] under possible charges of harassment.\" The minutes of the closed meeting, which I learned about just today, are available on the Board\'s site as well as here. According to the minutes, I and two other citizens were filing OPRA requests \"in an effort to find some information to support [a] suspicion . . . that some fraud or unethical events occurred.\" Board attorney Phillip Stern opined that \"the volume and nature [of the OPRA requests] has been expanding and interferes with the ability to administer the district.\" I confess that I am guilty as charged. I filed two OPRA requests with the Board--on April 7, 2011 and May 7, 2011--in an attempt to find out why the Board entered into a settlement agreement with its former business administrator and gave her a seven-month paid leave of absence at her annual salary of $99,465. The Board\'s responses to my two OPRA requests resulted in my June 3, 2011 lawsuit against the Board. http://www.lpcnj.org/OGTF/2011163Uv/PaffvRunnemede.pdf For unknown reasons, Stern never followed through on his promise to send me a \"cease and desist\" letter.
