Review of denials of public records requests.

(1) Any person who objects to the denial of a request for a public record may petition for prompt review of such decision by submitting a written request for review. The written request must specifically refer to the written statement by the public records officer or designee which constituted or accompanied the denial. A written petition for review may be sent to:
Public Records Officer
P.O. Box 43080
Olympia, Washington 98504-3080
(2) Immediately after receiving a written request for review of a decision denying a public record, the public records officer shall refer it to the administrative director. The administrative director shall immediately consider the matter and either affirm or reverse such denial. The request shall be returned with a final decision, within two business days following the WSLCB's receipt of the request for review of the original denial, or within such other time as the WSLCB and the requestor mutually agree to.
(3) If the WSLCB denies a requestor access to public records because it claims the record is exempt in whole or in part from disclosure, the requestor may request the attorney general's office to review the matter as provided in WAC 44-06-160.
(4) Judicial review. Any person may obtain court review of denials of public records request.
