U Memo 20-11
June 29, 2020
Written Claim Made to HART Board of Directors
HART denied access to a copy of a claim that was referenced in a HART Board of Directors meeting agenda. The Requester was willing to accept the record with individual names and identifying information redacted, but HART had withheld the entire record.
OIP concluded that HART was not entitled to fully withhold the requested claim to protect the privacy of individuals named therein or protect the identity of a confidential source, because their names and other identifying information were reasonably segregable from the record as a whole. HART was required to disclose the claim after redaction of the names and other identifying information for the claimant and two HART employees.
