The New Hampshire Supreme Court issued two opinions Friday that will require government agencies to share more information with the public.
In 1993, the New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled that public employee personnel records, including disciplinary records, are exempt from disclosure under the state’s Right to Know law. But Friday, more than 25 years later, the state’s high court has overruled that decision, known as Union Leader v. Fenniman, as well as prior decisions that relied on a broader interpretation of the Right-to-Know Law.
