The Kentucky Attorney General issued the following open records decisions last week:
1. 22-ORD-065 (In re: Roberto Ferdman/Louisville Metro Police Department)
Summary: The Louisville Metro Police Department violated the Open Records Act when it failed to respond to a request within five business days, and when it failed to provide a detailed explanation for the cause of delay in providing certain records. The Department did not violate the Act when it provided all records responsive to the request as submitted.
2. 22-ORD-066 (In re: Chris Hawkins/Kentucky State Penitentiary)
Summary: This Office cannot find that the Kentucky State Penitentiary violated the Open Records Act when it could not provide a copy of an email that does not exist within its possession.
