One of WIBs has a claimant that would like to review her case file.
Section 185(a)(3) of WIA has a requirement that states maintain
standardized records for all individual participants and subparagraph
(4)(A) of Section 185(a) provides generally that records must be
released except (under subparagraph (4)(B)) "information, the disclosure
of which woud constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal
privacy."  Under New York's FOI law, this exclusion would not apply to
individual requesting the records.  Has anyone dealt with this issue
differently?
