Critics charge that New Orleans officials are violating state law by requiring all requests for information to be made in writing, but the city defends the practice, citing existing policy based on the state’s public records law. The chief counsel for the Louisiana Press Association said the law “does not contemplate that everything has to be in writing. That’s just not right.” (2/20/08)
