The public is permitted access to government records under the New Jersey Open Public Records Act (OPRA) N.J.S.A. 47:1a-1, et seq. with certain exceptions. Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 47:1a-6 and 7, a person who is denied access to a government record by the custodian of record, at the option of the requestor, may appeal to either the Superior Court or the Government Records Council.
