CAB Violations Go Back to 2004
December 5, 2007 - *The dates given below correspond to when the office of the Public Access Counselor (PAC) issued its opinions on matters detailed in the previous news story, all of which are accessible online at www.in.gov/pac/.
November 2004 - CAB violated the Access to Public Records Act (APRA) by physically altering a state fire marshal's inspection report, then giving the altered copy to The Banner without disclosing the alteration. (Informal Opinion November 15, 2004)
February 2005 - CAB violated the Open Door Law in December 2004 when its school board held a private executive session to deal with matters other than those advertised in its public notice. (Formal Opinion 05-FC-9)
June 2005 - CAB violated the APRA by failing to properly cite its reason for withholding information about an unsuccessful job applicant, and by failing to provide information in a timely manner about the successful applicant, who was already a CAB employee. (Formal Opinion 05-FC-109)
April 2007 - CAB may have violated the APRA by failing to protect e-mails at the school corporation's central office from loss if the records, which CAB says were lost in a technology upgrade, were not destroyed in accordance with a proper record retention schedule. (Formal Opinion 07-FC 58)
June 2007 - CAB violated the APRA by wrongly withholding an e-mail that should have been produced in response to two Banner record requests. CAB's argument that the e-mail was withheld because it was an "investigatory record" of a law enforcement agency was soundly rejected. (Formal Opinion 07-FC-137)
November 2007 - CAB violated the APRA by redacting, or blacking out, more information than it should have on a record requested by The Banner. CAB also violated the law by not specifically identifying its reasons for redacting portions of more than 50 pages of e-mail communications. (Formal Opinion 07-FC-327)
