The privilege applies to grand jury subpoenas. See, e.g., O.C.G.A. § 24-9-30 (privilege applies "in any proceeding where the one asserting the privilege is not a party"); In re Paul, 270 Ga. 680, 684 (Ga. 1999).
The Act defines "public records" as "all documents, papers, letters, maps, books, tapes, photographs, computer based or generated information, or similar material prepared and maintained or received in the course of the operation of a public office or agency." O.C.G.A. § 50-18-70(a). The Act does not address the possibility of requesting future records.
The Georgia superior courts have wide-ranging equitable powers. The court may grant an injunction or other equitable relief to enforce compliance with the Act, including opening an appropriate meeting. However, injunctive relief is only appropriate to ongoing violations of the Act, and not to wrongs that are already fully consummated. Wiggins v. Board of Comm'rs. of Tift Cty., 258 Ga. App. 666, 668, 574 S.E.2d 874 (2002) ("[C]ourts cannot restrain that which has already been done.").
