The names would not be released in NJ unless in furtherance of a certifiable governmental need of a sister agency or governmental entity. Frederick Cohen, Executive Director Legal & Regulatory Services -----Original Message----- From: wiaattorneys-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:wiaattorneys-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Sante Perrelli Sent: Monday, April 24, 2006 10:21 AM To: Michael Milwee; 'sharlan@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'; wiaattorneys@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [wiaattorneys] Re: Can we release names of minors in youth programs Sarah I did some quick research here in Michigan regarding our state FOIA and have attached some references for your review. Releasing the names could invoke a personal privacy right argument. Sante >>> "Milwee, Michael (DOES)" <Michael.Milwee@xxxxxx> 4/21/2006 5:03:40 PM >>> Sarah--the DC FOIA has the same personal privacy thing that someone else mentioned. I think the idea of identifying folks as participants in government relief type programs is a violation of personal privacy....particularly ones that are means tested. If all your lists are intertwined, you might be able to argue that there is no list that doesn't have a privacy issue and you have no obligation to try and create one, though I think this is a weak argument and think that a personal privacy issue by itself is probably stronger, particularly if there is some Md statute about identifying minors at all.--Mike Milwee, DC -----Original Message----- From: wiaattorneys-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:wiaattorneys-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Sarah Harlan Sent: Friday, April 21, 2006 3:37 PM To: wiaattorneys@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [wiaattorneys] Can we release names of minors in youth programs Dear fellow WIA attorneys, Any input you could give would be great - we have received a freedom of information act request from a reporter who is requesting names of youth who participated in WIA youth activities in a certain local area. The request is for names only. I cannot find anything that would allow to deny the request - am I missing something?
