|City of Portland v. Mark Bartlett|
|Via Video Case 3|
|Denis M. Vannier on behalf of City of Portland|
Duane A. Bosworth on behalf of Mark Bartlett
Statement of Issues:
|(1) Does the attorney-client privilege control over the application of ORS 192.390, which makes public records more than 25 years old available for inspection, notwithstanding the exemption to the public records law for records that are confidential or privileged under Oregon law contained in ORS 192.355?|
(2) Whether, if ORS 192.390 makes otherwise-privileged documents of public bodies and their officers and employees available for inspection after 25 years, the Oregon Constitution's home rule provisions prevent the legislature from doing so on behalf of a home-rule city and its officers and employees?
