Are Investigations of Threats Against the Governor Public Record?
State of Ohio ex rel. Plunderbund Media, LLC v. Thomas P. Charles [John Born], Director, Ohio Department of Public Safety, Case no. 2013-0596
Original action in mandamus
In the denial of a public records request for reports of threats against the governor, did the Ohio Department of Public Safety meet its burden to show that the records fall within an exception to the state public records law?
Do public officials have a right to privacy that allows records about threats against them to be concealed?
