    Court: NYTimes's Request for New York City Gun Owners Violates Law

    As did the previous release of a list of gun owners.
    11:56 AM, Feb 5, 2013 By DANIEL HALPER


    A New York appellate court has ruled that the New York Times's request for a list of gun owners in New York City, under the Freedom of Information Law, violates the state's statute. The ruling overturns in part a lower court's ruling.

    "Order and judgment (one paper), Supreme Court, New York County (Jane S. Solomon, J.), entered November 1, 2011, granting the petition to the extent it sought an order directing respondent, under the Freedom of Information Law (Public Officers Law 84 et seq.) (FOIL), to provide an electronic copy of a database, as redacted, of names and addresses of New York City residents who have been granted handgun licenses, and a database, to be redacted, of hate crimes reported to respondent from January 1, 2005 to the present, and denying the petition to the extent it sought an order directing respondent to provide an electronic copy of its crime incident database, a declaration that respondent's practices in responding to FOIL requests violate the statute, and an order directing respondent to cease these practices, unanimously modified, on the law, to deny the petition as to the databases of handgun licensees and hate crimes and to reinstate the petition with respect to the demand for the crime incident database, insofar as it seeks production of the electronic crime incident database produced in Floyd v City of New York (08 Civ 01034 [SAS] [US Dist Ct, SD NY]) (the Floyd database), and the matter remitted to Supreme Court for a determination of whether production of the Floyd database should be ordered, and, if so, to what extent and under what conditions, and otherwise affirmed, without costs," reads the ruling.


    From the Standard.

    So what are the consequences? Damages to the people whose name they released? If there's no consequences to breaking the law, why should they stop?

    They have no business printing the names of gun owners.All that is doing is stirring up more trouble.They must not have learned anything from what The Journal did.

    What purpose do they have for printing the names? Seems foolish. I just canceled my online subscription to that newspaper. It gets delivered every morning to my iPad. I will find something else to read and keep my money out of their hands.

    I was thinking the same thing. I"m not aware that the NY Times has released any names but I'm wondering how this ruling affects what the Journal did, and how they will be held accountable.
