Temporary Restraining Order

The Court granted a preliminary injunction (attached) prohibiting Julian Tarver from requesting records from any state or local agency and relieves agencies from processing any public records requests received from him.  The attached order is in effect until the hearing for permanent injunction set for November 3rd. 

If you have requests from Tarver currently and have not already alerted AAG Tim Feulner or AAG Cassie VanRoojen who are taking the lead on this matter, please send a copy of the requests you’ve received to their attention at: Tim.feulner@atg.wa.gov & Cassie.vanRoojen@atg.wa.gov
