Valdosta State University Students present:
Lawyer in Your Pocket Transparency Project
The “Lawyer in Your Pocket” project—produced by students in JOUR 3540 Law and Journalism at Valdosta State University in fall 2015—provides working journalists (student and otherwise) with a guide to common problems concerning Georgia Open Records and Open Meetings law and their solutions. The Google fusion table can be filtered by “type of complaint” (open meetings, open records, other) and “category of complaint” (closed meetings, denied records, etc.) The table summarizes each issue and reports the result. It also cites appropriate Georgia state code, but note that the code has not been vetted by a lawyer. However, it should certainly provide you with a starting place to research your own situation. Note that most situations were pulled from Georgia Association Bulletins (dates cited). The table also provides the name of the news organization and reporter associated with the situation so that you can follow up.
The Lawyer in Your Pocket production team:
Lia Armistead, Jordan Barela, Gabe Burns, Mayah Cantave, Geneva Crooks, Jacob Dennis, Tiana Foster, Tyler Gerken, Brian Hickey, Terrance Johnson, Kenzie Kesselring, Larianne Kolb, Erin Martin, LaShawn Oglesby, Ray Pack, Tatyana Phelps, John Preer, Marquez Slaughter, Jason Smith, John Stephen, Kayla Stroud, Mel Thomas, Kristin Whitman, Lamarcus Wilkerson, Jyrell Wynn, and Veronica You.
