Delaware Attorney General Has No Duty to Initiate Enforcement Proceedings of State Public Record Law

Delaware prisoner Ronald sought mandamus relief to compel the Attorney General to initiate enforcement proceedings under the state’s Freedom of Information Act. The Superior Court denied the petition.

The Delaware Supreme Court affirmed, holding that Proctor had failed to establish that the Attorney General failed or refused to perform a non-discretionary duty that was owed to him. See: Proctor v. Brady, 918 A.2d 339 (Del.Supr. 2007).
