No. 92-10 AG Alpha No. JD JD AGATK - October 28, 1992

Topic
Release of Criminal Justice Records with Names of Sexual Assault Victims

Summary
House Bill 92-1195, amending both the Criminal Justice Record Act and the Open Records Act, is not intended to prohibit release of such court records to parties in interest and their counsel or to other criminal justice agencies without deleting victims' names. While Section 24-72-205(3) does not provide for the assessment of a fee for making the requisite "deletions," such a fee may be charged under the Criminal Justice Records Act.

No. 92-11 AG Alpha No. LE HR AGATJ - October 28, 1992

Therefore, a waiver executed by a subcontractor's officer-employee does not relieve the general contractor of its obligation to provide coverage for the subcontractor-employee under section 8-41-401.

Topic
Procuring Professional Services from Architects, Engineers & Land Surveyors.

The General Assembly intended to further the same goals in Part 14 as did Congress and the Model Code drafters.

Price comes into the procurement process only after the three most highly qualified professionals have been selected.
