State Records Committee Appeal Decision 2013-08

BEFORE THE STATE RECORDS COMMITTEE OF THE STATE OF UTAH

ERIC PETERSON, REPORTER FOR THE CITY WEEKLY, Petitioner, vs.

UTAH ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE, Respondent.

ORDER OF CONTINUANCE

Case No. 13-08

The present case came before the State Records Committee (“Committee”) for a hearing that was held on September 12, 2013. This matter originally was heard by the Committee on August 8, 2013, when it was determined that an in camera review of the disputed records was necessary pursuant to Utah Code § 63G-2-403(9). However, since the disputed records were too numerous to review in their entirety during the hearing and a portion of the disputed records were not provided to the Committee to review at the time of the hearing, the Committee continued the hearing until September 12, 2013. During the September 12, 2013, hearing, it was determined by the Committee that the parties should have an opportunity to brief whether Fed. R. Crim. P. 6 is applicable to the present case. See, Utah Code § 63-2-201(3)(b). According, IT IS HEREBY;

ORDERED: that this matter is hereby continued until the next scheduled meeting of the State Records Committee which will be held on October 10, 2013, in order to allow the parties to address the applicability of Fed. R. Crim. P. 6 to the present case by filing written memoranda concerning this subject.

This Order was made without objection and with the consent of the parties.

Entered this 23rd day of September 2013

BY THE STATE RECORDS COMMITTEE
