Pashman Stein Walder Hayden P.C. Named New Jersey Law Journal’s Law Firm of the Year 2023*


CJ Griffin Quoted in Article on OPRA Law Not Updated Since 9/11


CJ Griffin, a partner in the Media Law practice quoted in article, “The OPRA law hasn’t been updated since 9/11. Let’s fix it.” The article explains the New Jersey’s Open Public Records Act has not been changed since 2002. Senator Loretta Weinberg has filed another OPRA reform bill for the new legislative session to fix some of these flaws.

Attorney C.J. Griffin of Pashman Stein in Hackensack, an expert in public records law, put it this way: “Remove the fee-shift, and it would absolutely gut OPRA. Agencies would be able to unlawfully deny requests, and know there's no consequence for doing so because very few lawsuits will ever be brought.”
