Mason vs Hoboken City Hall

In 2005 Beth Mason filed a lawsuit seeking information about municipal cell phone use records in Hoboken. She was inspired to file the lawsuit after reading a report showing that Hoboken spent at least $230,000 over a three-year span in cell phones bills, substantially more than what nearby Union City paid over the same period.

In August 2008, she and the city reached a settlement under which Mason would receive partial access to the records she requested and $10,000 in legal fees. Due to concerns about privacy, one of the portions of the cell phone records exempt from disclosure would be the actual phone numbers - only area codes would be provided.[1]
