Haverstick v. Pa. State Police

The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court reversed an order that denied a Right to Know Law (RTKL) request. In response to an RTKL request, the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) turned over redacted documents after considerable delay. Requester appealed. The Commonwealth Court concluded that Requester was not given a meaningful opportunity to object to the records. And he did not waive the redaction issue that he presented on appeal, raising it at the first available opportunity in his petition for review. The Court remanded and ruled that the PSP must provide the Requester with unredacted copies of the records in a reasonable timeframe.
