Public Legal Opinions

Written communications between the lawyers in the City Attorney’s Office and City officials and employees concerning legal advice that are intended to be confidential are generally protected from public disclosure by the attorney-client privilege. This principal is recognized in the Utah Government Records and Access Management Act. See UCA Sections 63G-2-304(17) and (18).

However, the City may waive this privilege and release the written legal advice to the public if the City believes that it is in the City’s interest to do so. Legal opinions of the City Attorney’s Office that the City has decided to release to the public will be provided on this page.
