Respondent Deadline

If your agency or local unit of government receives a notice of complaint under this process, the deadline for a response is 15 business days after notification. Filing a response is important, as it allows the Administrative Law Judge the opportunity to fully assess whether there is probable cause to believe that the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act (MGDPA) has been violated. Where that probable cause is lacking, the case will be dismissed, thereby reducing the litigation burden on all parties. More complete information regarding the response is contained in the notice.
