(Harrisburg) -- A recent stat appeals court decision that denied a candidate's effort to prevent disclosure of his home address is producing conflicting responses.
The Office of Open Records has responded by seeking dismissal of another case, a nearly 4-year-old dispute about whether teachers' home addresses are subject to disclosure under the Right-to-Know Law.
But the Pennsylvania State Education Association and the school boards' association say last week's Supreme Court decision shouldn't be interpreted as applying widely to all disputes over home addresses.
The Pennsylvania School Boards Association is telling lawyers for school districts that the Supreme Court only upheld the lower court's decision against the prospective congressional candidate who didn't want to reveal his address.
But they say the Supreme Court didn't endorse the lower-court's entire rationale.
