Dear Sir or Madam,

Thank you for contacting the Township of Lakewood. Your OPRA request was received today, November 25, as such the seven business days to respond is December 7, 2020. This response is being made on November 25, 2020.

Please be advised that the legislature exempted the courts from OPRA at the time of its inception. Requests for documents from the Courts need to follow the judiciary's process and cannot be requested via OPRA. Please contact the Court directly to obtain the records you seek.

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 Township of Lakewood 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 GRC 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!
