Official seal of the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General

The Kentucky Attorney General issued the following open records decisions last week:

1. 24-ORD-098 (In re: John Cheves/Department of Juvenile Justice)

Summary: This Office cannot find the Department of Juvenile Justice violated the Open Records Act when it claims to have provided all records responsive to a request.

2. 24-ORD-099 (In re: Joel Peyton/Simpson County Judge/Executive)

Summary: The Simpson County Judge/Executive violated the Open Records Act when he denied a request as unreasonably burdensome under KRS 61.872(6). However, the Judge/Executive did not violate the Act when he denied a request that did not precisely describe the records sought.

3. 24-ORD-100 (In re: Ben W. Richard, Jr./Luther Luckett Correctional Complex)

Summary: Although the Luther Luckett Correctional Complex violated the Open Records Act when it did not originally conduct an adequate search for requested records, it has mitigated its violation by conducting an adequate search and providing the Appellant all responsive records that exist.

4. 24-ORD-101 (In re: Jill Charles/Boone County Planning Commission)

Summary: The Boone County Planning Commission did not violate the Open Records Act when it could not provide records that do not exist.
