Judgment: NOCVB is subject to Public Records Law

Jun 6, 2013 by

It is a simple and concise (yet oh-so-beautiful) document:

“…the Court Declares that the New Orleans Convention [and] Visitors Bureau (“NOCVB”) is subject to the Public Records Law, La. R.S. 44:1 et seq., and all applicable requirements with respect thereto, to the extent the requested records reflect expenditure of public funds, and that such documents are ‘public records’ under the Act. Furthermore, the NOCVB shall produce all such documents as required by the law, La. R.S. 44:1 et seq. and described herein.”

I recommend that any person making a public records request of the NOCVB for documents within the scope of the Public Records Act also consider helpfully including a copy of this judgment along with the request!
