MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says the police department in broke the state’s open records law when it failed to produce requested documents within a reasonable time.

Stenehjem in a written opinion says a man in September sent an email to police chief Dennis Bullinger requesting a copy of records regarding a detached trailer in Mandan. Bullinger found the records within a half hour of receiving the email, but city administrator Jim Neubauer took more than 10 days to send the records to the man who asked for them.

Stenehjem says that although the mistake was “inadvertent,” it does not excuse the long delay.

Stenehjem did not recommend any corrective measures because the man who asked for the records did receive them.
