2,434 Appeals Filed in 2017

2017 was the third-busiest year ever for the Office of Open Records in terms of the number of Right-to-Know Law appeals filed. In addition, the appeals continued to grow in complexity, with more sophisticated arguments being made and more nuanced issues being presented in many cases.

Nearly two-thirds (63.5%) of all appeals filed in 2017 were filed by everyday citizens. They were followed by:

  • Inmates, 18.4%
  • Companies, 10.1%
  • Media, 6.3%
  • Government officials, 1.6%

This information is from the OOR’s 2017 Annual Report.
