Opinion Search

In the past, Attorney General Opinions were issued in both “formal” and “letter” formats to differentiate between matters of statewide significance (Formal) and issues with a regional impact or limited effect (Letter). As all Attorney General Opinions have the same legal effect, the “formal” designation was discontinued in 2002. Prior to 2001, certain local issues were addressed in Advisory letters rather than as Opinions. Open Records and Meetings Opinions address only alleged violations of the open records and meetings laws.
