Board of Regents vs. Consumer Credit Research Foundation to be heard Feb. 5
The Georgia Supreme Court will hear the case of the Board of Regents vs. Consumer Credit Research Foundation at 10 a.m. on Feb. 5.
The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia is appealing a Georgia Court of Appeals decision, arguing that the Georgia Open Records Act requires disclosure of public records unless specifically exempted from disclosure by law or court order. The law itself grants a list of exceptions by stating that public disclosure shall not be required for certain categories of records.
The original case revolved around seeking declaratory and injunctive relief to prevent the release of the correspondence under the Georgia Open Records Act.
Georgia Supreme Court case number S17G1677
