PR 17-16 Harris v. City of Providence No Violation

The City did not violate the APRA when it exempted from public disclosure a videotape played at a public meeting depicting an assault on a private individual. The Complainant presented no evidence or argument that the public interest would be advanced through disclosure and R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-2(4)(K)'s mandate that documents submitted at a public meeting are public records and must be disclosed applies only to the categories of documents set forth in R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-2(4)(K).
