In a 5-page decision, the Massachusetts Public Records Division agrees with disability rights leader Eileen Feldman that the City of Somerville has failed to meet its burden in explaining why a majority of the 50 email records provided in response to a Public records request were near-fully redacted.
The State orders the City of Somerville to provide copies of the applicable records within 10 (calendar) days, or provide the public records division with a more detailed explanation of the exemption and privilege claims.
