Chester Water Auth. v. Pa. Dep’t of Cmty and Econ. Dev.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court

April 29, 2021

Chester Water Auth. v. Pa. Dep’t of Cmty and Econ. Dev. involved consolidated appeals arising under a law generally requiring public access to governmental records in Pennsylvania. The primary issue was whether a statutory deliberative-process exception extends to records exchanged between a Commonwealth agency and private consultants. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court reversed the Commonwealth Court and held that 65 P.S. § 67.708(b)(10)(i)(A) does not serve to insulate communications exchanged between a Commonwealth agency and a private consultant from the Law’s general requirement for openness.
