What if my request for government records is denied or if information redacted or deleted is essential to my research? Do I have any recourse?

How do I file an appeal?

A complaint can be filed with the Government Records Council at www.nj.gov/grc or by phone (Toll Free: 1-866-850-0511). Alternatively, the requester may file an appeal in Superior Court. Advice of an attorney is advised.
