Decision Date: 
August 27, 2012
District: 
2d Dist.
Division/County: 
Kane Co.
Justice: 
SCHOSTOK
Holding: 
Reversed and remanded.
Plaintiff filed FOIA complaint alleging that Secretary of State improperly denied his request for automated access to all DMV administrative decisions of license suspension or revocation within one year. Although request was invalid as to documents not yet created, it was valid as to existing documents. Secretary of State has burden to confer in attempt to reduce request to manageable proportions, before determining that request is unduly burdensome. (JORGENSEN and HUTCHINSON, concurring.)
