Lawson v. Office of the Attorney Gen. 61.878 It was proper to refuse to enjoin the Attorney General from disclosing a statement an owner gave because the breach of Transportation Cabinet contracting regulations and the Attorney General’s response remained matters of sufficient public interest to warrant an invasion of the owner’s limited interest in keeping his account under wraps; the possibility of a limited amount of purely personal information does not justify the blanket non-disclosure of a record with substantial public import. Lawson v. Office of the AG, 415 S.W.3d 59, 2013 Ky. LEXIS 640 (Ky. 2013). Link
Lawson v. Office of the Attorney Gen. 61.882, 61.878 General Assembly mandated the non-disclosure of exempt records, a mandate the person or entity whose interest the exemption protects may seek to enforce in the circuit court; disclosure of an exempt record is not precluded if the intended beneficiaries waive their right to non-disclosure, and the statutory mandate that prosecutorial files be and remain totally exempt accords the prosecutor an unlimited discretion to deny disclosure, but it does not preclude him or her from allowing it. Lawson v. Office of the AG, 415 S.W.3d 59, 2013 Ky. LEXIS 640 (Ky. 2013). Link
Skaggs v. Redford 61.878, 61.870 The Open Records Act neither intends nor provides that a convicted criminal should have complete access to the prosecutorial file once his conviction has been affirmed on direct appeal. Skaggs v. Redford, 844 S.W.2d 389, 1992 Ky. LEXIS 164 (Ky. 1992), overruled in part, City of Fort Thomas v. Cincinnati Enquirer, 406 S.W.3d 842, 2013 Ky. LEXIS 375 (Ky. 2013). Link
