4.6. Judicial review (63G-2-404)

A requester may petition the district court for judicial review of a chief administrative officer’s decision. However, if the decision is that of a political subdivision with a local appeals board, appeal must first be made to the local board. Either a requester or a governmental entity may appeal to the district court for judicial review of either a local appeals board or state records committee decision. A party that chooses to appeal to the state records committee does not waive the right to thereafter appeal to district court. The court will make its decision “de novo.”
