Is there a process to appeal an opinion of the Public Access Counselor?

No.  Because the Public Access Counselor cannot compel action or impose any sanctions, the Public Access Counselor deems a matter closed after the issuance of a formal opinion.  Because the counselor issues only an opinion, there is no appeal process.  If there is evidence that may change the Public Access Counselor’s opinion, she will review the information and may make necessary amendments to the opinion; this is a rare occurrence.
