NEWARK - The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the state police to try to get information on promotion policies.

The suit claims state police violated the state's Open Public Records Act when it rejected a request by a Latino group headed by a retired police officer.

The request was rejected last month as being "improper and over-broad."

The ACLU claims that while state police are allowed to keep individual employment records private, they are not allowed to keep general information on policies from the public.
