Case Note 20612 [2003] NZPrivCmr 16 – Scientist complains research institute withheld document

A scientist employed by a research institute became involved in a dispute with the Institute about the attribution of his research. The scientist requested access to his personal files. The Institute provided access to all material on the files apart from one memorandum. The scientist complained to me about this. I considered his complaint under information privacy principle 6, and formed the opinion there was no breach.
