Matter of Lesher, 49

In an article 78 proceeding to compel the district attorney and the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) appeals officer to comply with a records request, the Appellate Division's dismissal of the petition is affirmed, as the documents sought were exempt from disclosure under Public Officers Law section 87(2)(e)(i) as records compiled for law enforcement purposes which, if disclosed, would interfere with a law enforcement investigation, where the district attorney sustained his burden of articulating a factual basis for the exemption.
