MNPA panel:
Mass. public records law:

Bulletin Staff

A panel discussion at the Massachusetts Newspaper Publishers Association annual meeting Nov. 29 decried deficiencies in Massachusetts law governing access to public records, a problem one panelist said is worsened by an anti-access culture among the state’s public officials.

The panel included Sean Murphy, an investigative reporter for The Boston Globe; Peter Caruso, an Andover, Mass.-based lawyer who deals with First Amendment and media law; and Gavi Wolfe, a lobbyist and legislative director for American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts. They discussed their experiences with the public records law in Massachusetts, and offered possible solutions to an audience of 40 people. MORE >
