Alison;
The court has not received any request for records for this defendant. In addition if records are requested the appropriate form must be completed which we can provide to the requestor at the violation window.

Thank you,

J Alexander,

The municipal court is subject to different rules. I inquired with both the Municipal Court Administrator and the Assistant Township Attorney and they advise that the documents, if they exist, would be maintained by the municipal court, and since the municipal court is part of the judiciary, and not subject to OPRA, you would have to follow the judicial procedures for obtaining records.

See Ms. Flanagan's instructions below as to the process the Court requires to request records (using their own form).

Please let me know directly if you have any further questions of the Clerk's Office.

Thank you,

Dear Alison Carlisle,

I did not ask for Discovery or reports relating to a particular case which falls under court rules. I simply asked for a status or disposition which is well within the OPRA guidelines.

Yours sincerely,
