Senator Nia H. Gill v. N.J. Department of Banking and Insurance


The issue presented in this appeal is the right of GEICO,
which filed documents with the New Jersey Department of Banking
and Insurance, to intervene in a Government Records Council
proceeding held pursuant to the Open Public Records Act, in
which a third party seeks public disclosure of GEICO's
documents. GEICO moved to intervene, claiming that its
documents did not constitute public records, as they contained
confidential, proprietary information.
The GRC denied the motion to intervene and we reversed,
concluding that GEICO was entitled to participate in the GRC
proceeding to protect what it considers to be its confidential
and proprietary information.
