But as usual, the system failed him just as surely as it failed Liko, and now both of them have left our physical midst.
From The Motion: In Union Leader v. City of Nashua the Court held: “To advance the purposes of the Right-to-Know Law, we construe provisions favoring disclosure broadly and exemptions narrowly. See, e.g., Fenniman, 136 N.H. at 626, 620 A.2d at 1040; Herron v. Northwood, 111 N.H. 324, 326, 282 A.2d 661, 663 (1971). The balancing test in this case between the public’s Right-to-Know and the nature of the requested document or material and its relationship to the basic purpose of the Right-to-Know Law:
In this case the purpose of the Right-to-Know law is to determine whether a man paid with taxpayer monies who carriers a gun and who wears a badge was a dangerous instrumentality, and if so, whether the town of Franconia knew about it and what steps they took or failed to take to address it.
