Re: New York City Death Records #usa #records

I believe the Reclaim the Records case is still pending. Why New York City should be treated differently from the rest of New York State on the matter of death certificate availabilty sounds like unequal protection. I've been trying futilely to obtain the 1949 dc microfilms as public records from the Municipal Archives, which I believe should have become available before the new regulations went into effect, and which I do not believe were retroactively applied (otherwise a whole bunch of previously available microfilms would have to be removed). Perhaps also the 1950 set should be grandfathered in as well, not sure. Is there anyone associated with Reclaim the Records who can brief us on the status of the case?
