John Paff: Two new unpublished trial court OPRA opinions

The following two court opinions are not published in the law books and are not ordinarily written about in legal periodicals.  Unless somebody puts them on-line and calls attention to them, they are likely not to be located by people who may want to search for them.  I think that it's important that court opinions, even if they are not precedential, are easily accessible for future use.

I have converted the scanned opinions to searchable text versions.  This allows for easier reading and the ability to search for words and cut and paste.  Links to the scans are contained within the footers to the live documents.
