OPRA Case: Paff v. New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (Mercer)
 

Issue Detail:

 
Mercer County Courthouse, 400 S. Warren St, 4th Floor, Trenton, New Jersey (Judge Mary C. Jacobsson) Issue: The Fish and Game Council is a Division of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. I sought a roster showing the names of the Council members along with each member\'s city and county of residence. The Council\'s position is that since its members are \"volunteers who have responsibility in developing Hunting rules and regulations, compliance, and making policy recommendations to the Governor\'s Office . . . [t]here is a high possibility of harassment, from individuals who do not agree with certain policies/regulations or who may have lost their license due to violating the rules.\" My position is that disclosure of the Council members\' cities and counties of residence is not the type of information that needs to be kept confidential. (Note: I have not requested nor do I seek the actual addresses of the Council members.) Further, the Council\'s position conflicts with the Governor\'s practice of identifying the Council members\' cities and counties of residences in that office\'s press releases.
