This is an appeal to the RI Supreme Court filed by ACLU of RI cooperating attorney Lynette Labinger on behalf of former House Minority Leader Patricia Morgan whose access to documents pertaining to the former Attorney General’s expenditure of more than $50M in funds from the “Google settlement” was stymied by hundreds of questionable redactions.  Update: May 2019: In a letter to the ACLU, Attorney General Neronha’s office indicated they had reviewed all of the redacted documents initially provided Morgan and are now making public many of those documents in unredacted form.
