shrug-l: New Connecticut ruling on public records request

It seems Connecticut has a law in place that requires the scrubbing of
specific information for state employees who might be targets of
harassment or violence. Initially, the law pertained to state and local
police and prison guards. However, over the years this list has grown to
include 12 separate employee groups. The State Supreme Court recently
issued a ruling adding additional City records to the list that must be
scrubbed. To further complicate the issue, there is not a procedure in
place for the protected employees to notify the City or County that they
need to be removed from any open records data request. The local
government must expend the resources to try and figure out who is
protected and who is not.  


I thought this issue would be of some interest to the SHRUG list. Here
