Pa. Department of Education

Filed on: March 31, 2014

Status: Remanded to OOR

This request sought three emails between Ron Tomalis and the Pa. General Counsel's office that contained suggestions of investigative firms for Penn State to hire. The Office of Open Records ordered the Dept. of Education to release the records, but the Department has challenged that order in Commonwealth Court.
