Dear Kratovil,

Please accept this letter as the University Custodian of Records response
to your request for records pursuant to the Open Public Records Act
(“OPRA”). On June 30, 2020, this office received your request for the

The University has reviewed your request. The responsive document(s) is
available to you through the Rutgers University Open Records Center.
Please log in to the [15]Records Center and "My Request Center" to
retrieve the appropriate responsive document(s). The document(s) is also
attached to this email for your convenience. 

Please note, the responsive record has been redacted due to privacy
concerns N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.1.1. OPRA specifically places on the University
“a responsibility and an obligation to safeguard from public access a
citizen’s personal information with which it has been entrusted when
disclosure thereof would violate the citizen’s reasonable expectation of
privacy.” Serrano v. South Brunswick Twp., 358 N.J. Super. 352, 368 (App.
Div. 2003). New Jersey courts and the Government Records Council (“GRC”)
have consistently held that an individual has a reasonable expectation of
privacy in keeping his or her address out of the public domain. In Doe v.
Poritz, 142 N.J. 1, 82 (1995), the New Jersey Supreme Court acknowledged
that disclosure of an individual’s home address, or other personally
identifiable information, invokes privacy concerns, particularly when such
disclosure could result in “unsolicited contact or intrusion.” In order to
uphold the University’s obligations to protect an individual’s reasonable
expectation of privacy, we have redacted any and all personally
identifying information.

If your request has been denied, you may take your appeal to the New
Jersey Government Records Council (NJGRC), which has mediation and dispute
resolution procedures, or you may file a lawsuit with the New Jersey
Superior Court, as provided by N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1, et seq. Your rights of
appeal is provided with this letter at [16]Public Facing Pages of the
Rutgers University Open Public Records Request Center. You may also review
the brochure at the [17]Rutgers Custodian of Records page or visit the
[18]NJGRC page.

If you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further, you may

Dear Rutgers Open Public Records Center,

I am responding to your August 6 response. It is not reasonable or legal to redact the home city/state listed for these appointed members of the Board of Governors.
