Description

This collection contains opinions issued by the Attorney General on a variety of legal issues. Also included are summaries of opinions issued in a particular year and indices of opinions arranged by subject for a period of years. The opinions are arranged by the opinion number assigned to them at the time they were received by the Attorney General's office. However, the opinions from 1985 to 1990 are arranged chronologically according to when the opinions were issued. Numbers may be missing from the sequence, because the question was withdrawn by the requestor. Summaries of opinions released for each month are included when available.

Biographical/Historical Note

The Attorney General is charged by statute with the responsibility of providing written legal opinions requested by state officials. The purpose of the Opinions Department is to assist in fulfilling this statutory duty by preparing drafts of formal, written opinions. While opinions of the Attorney General do not constitute binding law or precedent, they do provide a significant source of legal interpretation, often with respect to questions that have not been addressed elsewhere.
