Lexington-Fayette v. Herald-Leader Co. 61.878 Litigation exception found in Open Records Act did not apply to disclosure of the specifics of settlement agreements made between local police department and litigants suing department, since such settlements were merely negotiated by counsel and not in closed meetings. Lexington-Fayette Urban County Gov't v. Lexington Herald-Leader Co., 941 S.W.2d 469, 1997 Ky. LEXIS 38 (Ky. 1997). Link
University of Kentucky v. Courier-Journal 61.878, 61.870 State university’s response to inquiry by collegiate athletic association into rules violation was not exempt from disclosure under Open Records Act exemption for public records. It is clear that the university is a “public agency” and the entire response submitted by the university to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) constitutes a public record. Where the university spent over $400,000.00 for the response and the public has a legitimate interest in its contents, the response is not exempt. Furthermore, the contents of the response are a matter of public interest and release would not constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. University of Kentucky v. Courier-Journal & Louisville Times Co., 830 S.W.2d 373, 1992 Ky. LEXIS 55 (Ky. 1992). Link
