1.00 cubic foot and 15 microfilm reelsSkip to Containers

These records are housed in the Utah State Archives' permanent storage room.

Historical Note

An agency history is available.

Scope and Content

These are Attorney General's informal opinions. State and local government agencies may present requests for opinions on questions of law to the Attorney General's Office. Unlike formal opinions, informal opinions do not undergo a scrutiny process and are not considered the opinion of the Office. Informal opinions may be considered to be legal advice. Opinions usually include the initiating request, an opinion, and an index memorandum.

Arrangement

Numerical by opinion number, numbers assigned chronologically.

Research Note

The double digit number preceding the hyphen in the opinion number designates the year in which the opinion was filed. From 1969 to 1975, all of the informal opinions were written by one attorney, Homer Holmgren. All of the opinion numbers in this time fram are preceded by the letters HH. No informal opinions were issued in 1976. Informal opinions after 1976 were written by a number of attorneys at the Attorney General's Office and have no alphabetical heading on the opinion number. Boxes 1 through 15 contain microfiche only. Opinions which are missing in fiche may still be in hard copy, though many are missing. The container list for Box 16 should be checked for items missing in fiche, items which may have been updated after filming, and opinion numbers which may have been assigned to more than one opinion.
