PR 20-14 DePault v. Rhode Island Highschool Football Coaches Association No violation

The Complainant alleged that the Association violated the APRA when it failed to respond to his records request. We found that the Association is a private volunteer organization made up of football coaches from both public and private schools. Crucially, there was no evidence that the Association was acting on behalf of or in place of a public body. Based on these undisputed facts, we found that the Association was not a "public body" under the APRA. We thus found no violation.
