AG Opinions

AG Opinions

Attorney General Opinions represent the view of the Attorney General that issued them on a specific legal question based on the law and facts as they stood at the time. By definition, an Opinion issued on a given date cannot consider subsequent developments in case law, statutes, or record evidence. Readers of these Opinions should therefore conduct their own research on the continued validity of an Opinion. Members of the public should consult directly with the relevant agency with regulatory or enforcement authority on a matter before acting in accordance with an Opinion.
