APRA PR16-41Piskunov v. City of Cranston Violation

The Complainant alleged that the City violated the APRA when it withheld requested documents without giving specific reasons for the denial and without indicating the procedures for appealing the denial. The evidence revealed that the City released the requested documents during the pendency of this matter. We found no evidence of a willful and knowing, or reckless, violation, noting that the City provided the requested documents within the extended thirty (30) business day time period. We also found that the City provided specific reasons for the denial. However, we concluded that the City violated the APRA by failing to indicate the procedures for appealing the denial.
