Description

From the contest entry summary: "More than 90 convicted felons, many found guilty of violent assault, sex crimes or theft, are licensed by the state of New York to work as aides in nursing homes with sometimes dangerous consequences for vulnerable residents." To obtain criminal court electronic databases and identify licensed workers, the newspaper had to sue state officials under New York's Freedom of Information Law.
