I'm not legally required to fill out your agency's form and that my email request
is legally valid. Please comply with my legally valid OPRA request within the legal time period
of 7 business days. Pursuant to Renna v. County of Union (App. Div. 2009),
OPRA requests should be on the agency’s official OPRA request form.
However, a written request that is not on the agency’s official OPRA
request form cannot be denied solely because the request is not on the
request form. Written requests which are not on the form must mention
OPRA. Therefore, if a requestor elects not to use an agency’s official
OPRA request form, he/she must submit an otherwise written request that
clearly identifies itself as an OPRA request.
