Rivera v. Division of Criminal Justice, Docket No. MER-L-1224-20


CJ Griffin filed a lawsuit on behalf of Richard Rivera, seeking the names of police officers who fatally shot a man in January 2019 in Gloucester County, as well as videos of the incident. The trial court rejected the state’s argument that security reasons justified withholding officers’ names and compelled disclosure. The court also ordered the release of redacted videos of the incident and ordered the state to pay the firm’s legal fees.
