Your State may be different, but New York's Freedom of Information Law (or FOIL, we like to be different) works like this:
The agency has to respond within five business days, but that response can read something like:
We have received your request for public records pursuant to FOIL. Due to the complexity of the records you have requested, it may not be possible to produce them within the standard 20-day statutory period. We anticipate that we will be able to produce the records you have requested within 40 days. If you have questions or concerns, please direct them in writing to the address above.
If they run into a snag, they have to inform you of this and produce the records within a "reasonable period".
So it's not like NYC was under a five-day time crunch here. They could easily have responded and said it would take 40 or 60 days, being as there were several million records requested. That's definitely long enough to bring in a consultant (or even one of the more technically-literate staff members) to properly secure the data.
Sandra Day O'Connor hasn't been on the Supreme Court for eight years now. That glorified shitstain Sam Alito replaced her. While it would certainly be interesting to hear her opinion of the case, such opinion would carry no weight whatsoever.
I just took a nuclear shit. It was the bomb.
(Am I doing it right?)
No one should even consider to be concerned about what other people do.
You seem pretty concerned about OP's alleged hate speech.
What the fuck did I just read?
I'll bite. Please present evidence supporting your claim that "that research has since been disproven".
I hate to break it to you, but you're sorely mistaken. Every State has gotten rid of the marital rape exemption. Some of them maintain differences in exactly how it's prosecuted, but it's still rape.
Who's writing Linux these days? One can only hope it's not the same people who are responsible for the abomination that is Slashdot Beta.
Most importantly, we want you to know that Classic Slashdot isn't going away until we're confident that the new site is ready.
I have a better idea. It can be accomplished by deleting the last nine words of the sentence: "Classic Slashdot isn't going away."
It ain't broke. Don't fix it.
Oh, it's even more fiendishly perfect than what you describe.
See, at the end of the 10-year repayment period, the remaining balance does, in fact, get wiped, but the amount that's wiped is treated as taxable income. So if you've "racked up all the debt you want" and have $100,000 worth of forgiveness, say hello to a $35,000 tax bill.
What's that? You can't pay the tax on your newfound "wealth"? Well then, men with guns will come to your house, seize your property, and put you in a cage.
It's not feudalism, it's something rather worse.
But this is an IT and business process story, not a marijuana legalization story. Ron Miller writes about the cloud workflow required to solve the task:
He chose these particular tools because they all had open APIs, which allowed him to mash them together easily into the solution. They were easy to use, so reviewers could learn the system with little or no training, and they were mobile, so users could access the system from any device. In particular he wanted reviewers to be able to use the system on a tablet.
I suppose this could have been written about more mundane RFPs, but I bet you'll find this more interesting than most."

I'm a little drunk, so I read that as "the efficient conduit for the transmission of God's word to earth". Which still kind of works.
I haven't much to say, other than from one New York lawyer to another, BIG UPS. Keep doing your thing, Ray. You'll wear the bastards down eventually!
