+ - Supreme Court restricts public records requests — Help hack its decision->

Submitted by v3rgEz
v3rgEz (125380) writes "The Supreme Court ruled this morning that states have the right to restrict public records access to locals, meaning one more hurdle to would-be muckrakers everywhere. Even in-state requesters are harmed: It means one more bureaucratic hurdle and another excuse for agencies to respond in paper rather than electronically. MuckRock has helped file requests in all 50 states — important for projects like the Drone Census — and we're looking for more volunteers to help ensure transparency from sea to shining sea. States impacted:
  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Delaware
  • Georgia
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • Tennessee
  • Virginia

If you live in one of the above, fill out a simple form and we can help ensure that sunshine isn't restricted depending on where you live."
