Hi, just checking on the status of this OPRA request, which was sent August 4. Not sure if it ever got delivered or ended up in spam.

Saviet, Kim, Ocean County Clerk's Office

JerseyShoreMan,

           

This request seeks information or asks questions and does not identify
specific government records.  As such, your request is an invalid OPRA
request and is denied.  When a request is “complex” because it fails to
specifically identify the documents sought, then that request is not
“encompassed” by OPRA.  See New Jersey Builders Association v. New Jersey
Council on Affordable Housing, 390 N.J. Super.  166, 180 (App. Div.
2007).  A proper request under OPRA must identify with reasonable clarity
those documents that are desired, and a party cannot satisfy this
requirement by simply requesting all of an agency’s documents.  See Bent
v. Stafford Police Department, 381 N.J. Super. 30, 37 (App. Div. 2005). 
Custodians are not required to conduct research or create new records in
response to an OPRA request.
 
You are free to make an appointment to view all records in the County
Clerk Deed room to conduct your own search.  Please reach out to Sheila
Burke-Jaccoud in the Deed Room at 732-929-2053.
 
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 (agency) 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 website
at [1]//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,

Kim Saviet
