PR 17-10 Farinelli v. City of Pawtucket No Violation

The Complainant alleged that the City violated the APRA when it failed to produce certain documents responsive to her request. Specifically, the APRA request sought the last twelve internal affairs reports and, although the City provided twelve internal affairs reports, the Complainant alleged that other, more recent, internal affairs reports should have been included. The evidence revealed that the Complainant was already in possession of the sought documents and, in some instances, that the sought documents were not responsive to her APRA request. We found no evidence of a willful and knowing, or reckless, violation.
