    Public Information Act

    Legal Guidance

    "We've got this one requestor who asks for the same document over and over and over again, because they keep misplacing the copy I previously sent them. Do I have to keep providing the same record over and over and over again?"

    Does the county have to fulfill redundant open records requests from a requestor?

    No, pursuant to Government Code §552.232. If a person requests information the county has previously provided to that person, the county may certify that fact to the requestor rather than producing the information again. This procedure is not available if there have been additions, deletions, or corrections to the information since the county received the previous request. For more information, see our handbook Public Information Act.
