CJ Griffin is representing Trenton resident Mike Ranallo, who filed a complaint against the City of Trenton and the Trenton city clerk regarding the clerk’s repeated failure to provide documents in response to his Open Public Records Act requests.

“The internal mudslinging and drama that has plagued Trenton over the past year seems to be standing in the way of the Clerk fulfilling his statutory duties and granting access to government records,” attorney C.J. Griffin, who represents Ranallo, wrote in a complaint filed this month.

Griffin, who has also represented The Trentonian in several public-access lawsuits, said her client was “very patient” and allowed adequate time for the clerk’s office to respond to his OPRAs after the state relaxed a seven-day deadline for municipalities and public agencies to fulfill requests.
