If the list is a public record in your state, it is not illegal to publish the record. Most governmental filings are public records unless the state passes a specific law prohibiting their release. This issue of 'doxing' is an example of the law not having caught up with the technology which can put people at risk of harm if their address or other contact information is posted online. Consider the implications before submitting any future governmental filings.
