State Panel OKs $30,500 Payment To Newspaper For Legal Fees In Open-Records Suit

By: Jason Noble | Des Moines Register

The state of Iowa will pay $30,500 in legal fees accumulated by a newspaper in a lawsuit over access to records from the University of Iowa.

In a case that went all the way to the state Supreme Court, the university won the right to withhold certain records requested by the Iowa City Press-Citizen in 2007. But the courts ruled that other documents sought in the suit were public records and ordered their release.
