Discovering Public Records What is out there and How do I get it?
August 13, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
How do you file a public records request in Massachusetts? What agencies are subject to public records requests? What sort of information can you request? What are some of the obstacles, such as cost and access, to obtaining public records?
Attorney David Nathanson will discuss these questions and more in this overview of public records law and practice. He will discuss changes to public records law (2017) and new case law that broadened the access to public records information.
Attorney David Nathanson has specialized in post-conviction criminal defense since 1997. He has also provided representation in trial-level cases as minor as trespassing and as serious as double-murder. He was a solo practitioner from 1997 until 2001, when he joined the Committee for Public Counsel Services as a staff attorney in the Criminal Appeals Unit of the Private Counsel Division. He left CPCS to form Wood & Nathanson in December, 2007.
