Whether and when electronic communications such as emails, text messages, social media posts and tweets are subject to public records laws is a confusing and challenging question for public officials and journalists alike. This live webinar presented by Mary Ellen Roy and Dan Zimmerman will explain when such electronic communications must be disclosed and when they may remain confidential. The webinar will also discuss the pitfalls to be avoided by public bodies dealing with confidential communications, as well as by citizens seeking access to an open government. You also will learn the risks - and benefits - of litigating public records disputes, including the possibility of substantial attorneys' fees awards.
