APRA PR16-38 Piskunov v. Town of North Providence No Violation

Complainant alleged that the Town violated the APRA when it failed to respond to his February 13, 2016 APRA request. Because the Town later released the requested documents to Complainant, we concluded that we only needed to determine if the Complainant's allegation represented a willful and knowing, or reckless, violation of the APRA such that the Town would be subject to civil penalties. Based on the specific facts presented, including the fact that the Complainant did not comply with the Police Department's procedures for submitting an APRA request, we found no evidence of a willful and knowing, or reckless, violation.
