Dear Catherine Kim,

The county cannot discriminate against which email addresses that it will respond to. There is nothing in the OPRA statute or New Jersey case law that authorizes the County to exercise any "discretion" over whether or not these requests are valid. The e-mail address that I already provided is legally valid. Please comply with my legally valid OPRA request within 7 business days.

Yours sincerely,

ASK NJ Media Co.

Catherine Kim,

Ms. Coombs,

Despite the County's attempt to cooperate with you, you continue to refuse to provide an alternative e-mail address. As a result, your OPRA request is denied.

If your request for access to a government record has been denied or unfilled within the seven (7) business days required by law, you have a right to challenge the decision by the County of Monmouth to deny access. At your option, you may either institute a proceeding in the Superior Court of New Jersey or file a complaint with the Government Records Council (“GRC”) by completing the Denial of Access Complaint Form. You may contact the GRC by toll-free telephone at 866-850-0511, by mail at P.O. Box 819, Trenton, NJ, 08625, by e-mail at [email address], or at their web site at www.state.nj.us/grc. The Council can also answer other questions about the law. All questions regarding complaints filed in Superior Court should be directed to the Court Clerk in your County.

Thank you,
