Ernest M. D?Orazio, III v. Washington Township, et al

Opinion & Order


Issue: Whether defendants should disclose the identities of two (2) confidential informants who allegedly passes information critical to plaintiff?s case.

CI 1

The Court held that the identity of CI 1 should not be disclosed because his/her identity is not essential to ensuring that plaintiff has a fair opportunity to prepare his case.

CI 2

The court ordered the disclosure of CI 2 given the importance of his identity to the heart of the case, the fact that disclosure of CI 2?s identity would be limited, and lack of evidence that any harm will result to CI 2 if his identity is revealed.
