Alaska PRA Requires Disclosure of Annexation Records

Abigail Fuller, and other Homer, Alaska residents sued the city in state court under the state Public Records Act (PRA), Alaska Stat. § 40.25.100 et see, to compel disclosure of documents used to prepare a petition for annexation of lands adjacent to the city. The trial court dismissed, finding a "deliberative process" exemption, and Fuller appealed.

On appeal, the Supreme Court of Alaska found that the public's right to know under the PRA outweighed any deliberative process privilege the city might have. Therefore, the Court reversed and remanded with instructions for Lae trial court to order the documents disclosed. See: Fuller v. City of Homer, 75 p.3d 1059 (2003).
