Summary of exemptions.

The act and other statutes contain hundreds of exemptions from disclosure and dozens of court cases interpret them. A full treatment of all exemptions is beyond the scope of the model rules. For a discussion of several commonly used exemptions, see these documents on the attorney general's office web site: Open Government Resource Manual at http://www.atg.wa.gov/open-government-resource-manual (the manual contains a discussion and summaries of many exemptions, links to statutes, and links to many court decisions and several attorney general opinions); and, the code reviser's annual list of exemptions in the state code, available at http://www.atg.wa.gov/sunshine-committee.
