Dear Nutley Township,

This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I am not required to fill out an official form. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Records requested:

I seek any and all permits to assemble, demonstrate and or gather for any rally, in the Township of Nutley from 3/1/2020 to present. The copy of the permit and all related documents as the Township evaluated the need and requirements for the health and safety of the citizens of Nutley.

Additionally, I seek all related OT to cover the rallies by the Nutley Police, all outside agencies, fire department and ems.

Yours faithfully, Rory Moore

Mr. Moore,

 

This correspondence shall serve as Nutley Township (the “Township”)’s
response to your request for access to government records pursuant to the
Open Public Records Act, N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.1, et seq. (“OPRA”), which was
received by the Township on July 1, 2020 during regular business hours.
Below is a list of each request for access and the Township’s response to
the same:

 

"I seek any and all permits to assemble, demonstrate and or gather for any
rally, in the Township of Nutley from 3/1/2020 to present. The copy of the
permit and all related documents as the Township evaluated the need and
requirements for the health and safety of the citizens of Nutley.
Additionally, I seek all related OT to cover the rallies by the Nutley
Police, all outside agencies, fire department and ems." Please see
attached overtime list. No responsive permits were located as per this
request.

 

To the extent that you have also requested access to the above government
records under the common law, your stated interest in obtaining the
records must be balanced against the Township of Nutley’s interest in
nondisclosure.  See Loigman v. Kimmelman, 102 N.J. 98 (1986).  The
foregoing response to your request for access to government records
incorporates the aforementioned balancing test.  Please note that "a
party's status as a litigant does not enlarge its access to government
records under OPRA”.  MAG Entm't, LLC v. Div. of Alcoholic Beverage
Control, 375 N.J. Super. 534, 545-46 (App. Div. 2005).  The Township of
Nutley reserves the right to raise any other grounds for denial not raised
in this response.  Failure of the Township of Nutley to assert an
exemption or privilege does not act as a waiver of any grounds for
denial.  Furthermore, a reviewing Court or the Government Records Council
("GRC") may deem a denial of access to be authorized on grounds other that
those advanced by a custodian.  See Paffv. Twp. of Plainsboro,
A-2122-05T2, 2007 WL 957289, at *2 (App. Div., Apr. 2, 2007), affirming,
Paff v. Township of Plainsboro, GRC Complaint No. 2005-29 (March 2006). 
If your request for access to a government record has been denied or
unfilled, you have a right to challenge the decision by the Township of
Nutley to deny access.  At your option, you may either initiate a
proceeding in the Superior Court of New Jersey or file a complaint with
the 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 [1][email address], or on
its website at [2]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.

 

Sincerely,
