Terry Mutchler Discusses Employees’ Retirement System of Rhode Island in GoLocalProv

March 31, 2023

Terry Mutchler, Chair of Obermayer’s Transparency & Public Data Practice, was interviewed by GoLcalProv in connection with a major case involving the Employees’ Retirement System of Rhode Island. According to the WSJ, the funds in question represent about $5 trillion in retirement savings of police, firefighters, teachers, and other public workers. 

In the article, titled “Big Lies at the Tiniest State Pension,” published on March 31, 2023, Terry discussed the Access for Public Records Act request, that she sent on January 20, seeking the prospectus and private placement memo, non-disclosure agreements and side letter and investment manager agreements pertaining to the pension, among other requests.

“This is one the most critical public records requests I’ve ever made,” Mutchler told online news source GoLocalProv, calling the response from Diossa to her five-part request for transparency in pension management fees “wholly inadequate.”
