Government agencies must conduct a “good faith” search for records requested under the Maryland Public Information Act

“An agency that receives a PIA request must conduct a search in good faith that is reasonably designed to capture all responsive records,” Judge Robert N. McDonald wrote for the Court of Appeals. “A public-records request is not an occasion for a game of hide and seek. For that reason, if possible, an agency should in good faith provide some reasonable assistance to the requestor in refining the request for the records the requestor seeks.”

  1. A game of hide and seek
    In a wild goose chase
    Whoever finds it keeps
    But gets lost in the maze.
