Additional info: from the New York Times, from Associated Press
Hidden data embedded in electronic public records must be disclosed under Arizona's public records law, the State Supreme Court ruled. The unanimous decision overturned lower courts' rulings and is one of the first decisions by a state appellate court on whether a public records law applies to so-called "metadata", or data about data. Metadata can show how and when a document was created or revised and by whom. The ruling came in a case involving a demoted Phoenix police officer's request for data embedded in notes written by a supervisor.

Interesting spin on a data question, but put into a modern IT context.

Auditing, compliance, fear of not being able to prove compliance.....definitely things that are driving the need for better metadata and especially better lineage...
