By: Dana Rubinstein | Capital New York

Today, an appellate court ruled against the New York Times in a suit about gun permits, and public access to an electronic database containing the addresses of permit-holders, arguing that a lower-court judge had “erred” when, in 2011, she ruled in the newspaper’s favor.

In the ruling, obtained by Capital, a panel of appellate judges agreed with the NYPD’s contention that the release of permit-holder addresses in electronic-database form to the Times might endanger permit-holders, and, since the NYPD had already released the zip codes of permit-holders to the Times, would really serve no further journalistic purpose.
