Settlement of Lawsuit Against A Public Official Or Public Body

FOI Advisory Council Opinion AO-14-00

Complaints against identifiable individuals are exempt personnel records; settlement amounts are public records, but if a record listing all amounts paid does not exist, public body has no duty to compile such a list; reworded request may yield documents sought.

Lemond v. McElroy

Documents generated in connection with the payment process of a settlement agreement, after the mutual agreement to settle, are open to public inspection.
