Dear Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Open Public Records Act reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office's handling of my OPRA request 'Email log'.

On June 20, 2017, the New Jersey Supreme Court in Paff v. Galloway Township expanded the scope of OPRA to require public entities to produce information relating to the “sender,” “recipient,” “date,” and “subject” of emails even if that means the agency would need to create a new document.

The Supreme Court viewed the issue as one of statutory interpretation and agreed with the trial court that OPRA defines a “government record” as “information stored or maintained electronically.” The Court further reasoned that the Legislature did not define government records as only documents or files maintained electronically – rather the key word is information. Specifically, the Supreme Court found:

A document is nothing more than a compilation of information — discrete facts and data. By OPRA’s language, information in electronic form, even if part of a larger document, is itself a government record. Thus, electronically stored information extracted from an email is not the creation of a new record or new information; it is a government record.

Furthermore, in my request I asked for a non conflicted individual to respond as Mr. Santoliquido is one of the parties I am requesting email logs of. This is NOT the first time he has denied OPRA requests from me and he is aware that I have filed an ethics complaints against him for releasing my husband's confidential records to a law firm that used to have a friend of his working for them and in which we were in litigation against in a civil action. Mr. Santoliquido's continued unethical behavior is a serious concern for our family as the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office once handled cases involving my husband, Jason Samaritano.

Please review my requests and his response and get back to me. I appreciate your time.

Please investigate my requests and Assistant Prosecutor Santoliquido's denials to my requests. Our conflict with HIM directly is reason enough for his actions to be investigated. He previously gave my husband's confidential records INCLUDING GRAND JURY INFORMATION to a law firm we were in litigation with in a civil matter. His abuse of power is a prime example of Official Misconduct in your County's Prosecutor’s Office. The information he provided to that law firm was subpoenaed via hand delivery to Mr. Santoliquido by his friend that worked in that law firm. Mr. Santoliquido did not wait to release the information on its due date allowing us OBJECTION TIME. He instead gathered it and released it within a couple of days violating my husband's rights and violating his oath as an attorney.
