John Doe G v. Dept. of Corrections, WSSC No. 94203-0

On August 11, 2017 WACDL filed an amicus on the issue of whether evaluations performed for the purpose of seeking a SSOSA are protected health care information.

Court

WSSC granted review on two issues.

Issues

Were respondents properly allowed to use pseudonyms when filing for injunctive relief to prevent the disclosure of evaluations used to petition for sentencing pursuant to SSOSA?

Are SSOSA evaluations protected health care information exempted from release under the PRA?

WACDL Amicus

Evaluations prepared for assessing treatment amenability for the Special Sex Offender Sentencing Alternative (SSOSA), an alternative sentencing disposition, are historically rooted in treatment of sex offenders, constitute protected health care information for purposes of the Public Records Act.
