APRA PR16-45 The Providence Journal v. R.I. Department of Corrections - No Violation

Complainant alleged that the DOC violated the APRA when it declined to produce documents responsive to its APRA request. The evidence indicated that the DOC properly withheld documents due to the privacy interests that outweighed the public interest in disclosure. We also found that the documents were not reasonably segregable and contained individually identifiable medical and health care information subject to federal health care confidentiality law.
