Court stays FOI ruling on police force records

Posted By on Thu, Dec 8, 2011 at 10:11 AM

The Arkansas Supreme Court today granted an emergency stay sought by the city of Little Rock to block Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen's order that it release information about Police Lt. David Hudson's history of use of force. That record is being sought by Keith Hall, defense lawyer for a man punched repeatedly in the face by Hudson before an arrest at Ferneau restaurant. Hudson has filed reports at least four times on using force in arrests.

The beating was captured on video. Hudson was working as a private security officer and said Chris Erwin resisted a directive to leave a private party. The court ordered an expedited briefing schedule.

The court issued the stay Tuesday, but the decision was released with other rulings today.
