Paragould paper wins FOI case

Posted By on Wed, Jun 16, 2010 at 1:12 PM

A Greene County circuit judge has ruled in favor of the Paragould Daily News, forced to sue a local school district over its refusal to release records indicating why it had given several assistant football coaches paid suspensions after a Greene County Tech high school football playoff trip to Monticello.

Background here.

The judge said there was a compelling public interest in the disclosure. The School District wanted the FOI law declared unconstitutionally vague. Given its refusal to provide public accountability to date, it wouldn't be surprising if the district wasted more money on an appeal.
