Com. v. Chestnut 61.884 Other than the exception found at KRS 197.025, the open records laws identify no class or type of persons, even prisoners, who are held to a more stringent standard when submitting open records requests. This presumption in favor of broad availability of public records is even stronger when a person, like an inmate, seeks access to public records pertaining to himself, under KRS 61.884; the Department of Corrections bears the burden to rebut the strong presumption in favor of disclosure. Commonwealth v. Chestnut, 250 S.W.3d 655, 2008 Ky. LEXIS 116 (Ky. 2008). Link
