At the end of Mahari Bruna responsum 111 (שו"ת מהר"י מברונא סימן קיא) he refers to a responsum by R' Meir of Rotenburg in which it was held that anyone could demand, on pain of cherem, a copy of any document pertaining to them from the files of another person. Can anyone help me find the R' Meir responsum he’s citing?

    I believe it’s this responsum (Berlin, II 48) where Maharam states that, in order to obtain information regarding a certain matter (in that case, the reason for a wife’s rebelliousness), a community may pronounce a ban on anybody in possession of information and does not come forward. – Oliver Nov 11 '19 at 22:16
