Privacy Protection in Texas
While Texas has not enacted a privacy act, its Supreme Court has defined the right of privacy as a constitutional right. The Texas Public Information Act (PIA) passed initially as the Open Records Act and amended most recently in 1999, requires full disclosure of most government-held information, but also provides some privacy protection.
The Texas Supreme Court defined the right of privacy as:
…the right of an individual to be left alone, to live a life of seclusion, to be free from unwarranted publicity…and the right to be free from the wrongful intrusion into one’s private activities in such manner as to outrage or cause mental suffering, shame or humiliation to a person of ordinary sensibilities.
The Court also has found that:
the Texas Constitution protects personal privacy from unreasonable intrusion. This right to privacy should yield only when the government can demonstrate that an intrusion is reasonably warranted for the achievement of a compelling governmental objective that can be achieved by no less intrusive, more reasonable means.
Texas’ PIA states that “public information” that is “collected, assembled, or maintained under a law or ordinance or in connection with the transaction of official business” should be available to citizens unless expressly provided for otherwise by law. The PIA has provisions prohibiting the release of 35 specific types of personal information collected for limited purposes for specific state programs or agencies. These exceptions address particular populations and circumstances, such as state employees, crime victims, and prison inmates. Student records and library records also are protected, but the act does not address the privacy of the average citizen in all situations. Other information is protected by the Texas Constitution, judicial options, and around 580 specific Texas statutes.
