PAC Opinion Finds FOIA Violation for Failure to Respond

After three months without a binding opinion from the PAC Office of the Illinois Attorney General, the PAC issued an opinion finding a municipality in violation of FOIA for failing to respond to a union's FOIA request for various records pertaining to a bargaining unit and finances of the municipality. PAC Op. 19-006. Not only did the municipality fail to respond to the FOIA request, it also did not respond to the PAC's request for review. Nothing new or helpful in this binding opinion except another reminder that public bodies have an obligation to respond to FOIA requests.
