The state Office of Information Practices has issued two new formal opinions, which are attached and posted on its website. OIP Op. Ltr. No. F14-01 considered the issues of mandatory disclosure under the UIPA and concluded that there was no waiver of attorney-client privileged materials that were reviewed in camera by OIP. Op. Ltr. No. F14-02 considered the Sunshine Law’s requirement to keep minutes and concluded that minutes need not reflect views presented in written testimony, which constitutes a government record in itself and provides a complete record of its contents.
Summaries and the complete formal opinions can be found on the Opinions page at oip.hawaii.gov. For the latest open government news, check for archived copies of What’s New articles that are posted here, or e-mailed upon request. To be added to OIP’s e-mail list, please e-mail [email protected]
