President Judge Katherine B. Emery of the Washington County Court of Common Pleas this week ruled that California Borough must release video from a holding cell in response to a Right-to-Know Request.
Judge Emery’s decision upholds the Final Determination issued by the OOR in June 2016.
Earlier today, I was pleased to speak to the Criminal Justice Advisory Committee, a committee under the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, in Harrisburg.
The topic was video records such as bodycams and dashcams, how they’re currently handled under Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law, pending legislation on the topic, and other related issues.
My thanks to the Chairman, Representative Mike Vereb, for inviting me to speak.
Here’s the presentation I used:
