Request #15-449

 
Closed

Dear records officer,

This is a public records request to inspect ALL (all inclusive time
frame) of the Port of Seattle's public records with their associated meta-data
except security video footage (do want all 911 calls/radio audio) that
hasn't been retrieved for a specific incident. The purpose of my
request is to make government as transparent as possible so that the
public can fully control it and use it's public records for good
purposes without having to request it. I'm PDRing all local government
agencies in the county. I expect that you will forward this to all of
the public records officers at the Port of Seattle including the police department. I also expect you to
immediately have all retention schedules frozen to ensure all public
records are preserved so they can be released to me. I will make my
own copies of the records and publish them on insideyourgovernment.com
I will not be selling the records. I will simply be posting them
online and providing tools to use them for good purposes. For medical
information please redact patient identities so I can have the
substance.

This records request is valid because it is not vague. "If a request
is too vague, an agency can request a clarification. RCW 42.17.320.
Here, it cannot be said that the request was vague.  Rather, the
issue is whether the request was overbroad." - See more at:
http://caselaw.findlaw.com/wa-supreme-court/1034370.html#sthash.IxCeoooz.dpuf
The request was for "the opportunity to inspect all books, records,
documents of every kind and the physical properties of the Elevated
Transportation Company." I believe my request is similar to the one in
Hangartner v. City of Seattle.

The law was changed to allow overbroad requests which the court has
reminded the State of Washington of: "Moreover, although DOT
understandably is concerned about the time and expense it will incur
in processing voluminous records requests, it would have been subject
to the same burden had Mendoza de Sugiyama requested these records
before any controversy with DOT was reasonably anticipated or had
another member of the public made the same request under the PRA. The
PRA specifically prohibits agencies from denying requests for public
records solely on grounds that the request is overbroad. RCW
42.56.080. Accordingly, the vital government interests at stake here,
based essentially on the breadth of the request, do not trump the
mandate of the PRA and, therefore, RCW 42.56.290's exemption, which we
must construe narrowly, does not apply."
