“After being denied access, Stipek asked for all non-student parking citations. But the university replied that it didn’t have the technological capability to redact student information from the database, according to (Stipek’s) petition,” Senat wrote in a Freedom of Information Oklahoma blog on Tuesday.
“I have spoken with Boren regarding the matter, he is sympathetic to the concept of disclosing the names of students receiving tickets, but the university is bound to comply with federal guidance. Should that guidance change, the university will adopt policies that include the disclosure of student information alongside that are already available for faculty, staff and others,” the letter stated.
The petition states that Stipek wants the defendants to release all parking citations issued by the University of Oklahoma and respectfully requests reasonable attorney fees and all such other relief as the court deems proper.
