Reply in Support of Motion to Enforce the CPC’s Right to Access Information

Date Filed: August 5, 2021

The City of Cleveland’s Response (Dkt. # 370) to the United States’ Motion to Enforce the Cleveland Community Police Commission’s (“CPC”) Right to Access Information (Dkt. #365) underscores why the relief requested is necessary.

The United States’ Proposed Order seeks to establish a reasonable and predictable timetable for responses to CPC information requests and a consistent method to timely resolve disputes over the City’s obligation to provide information.

The City’s response continues to dispute the CPC’s entitlement to the requested information, admits that many CPC requests are still outstanding, and includes no commitments on when it will provide the requested information. The City’s opposition to orderly resolution exemplifies the need for the Court-ordered procedure requested by the United States.
