Kudos and Congrats to the Nashville Scene

Judge Bonnyman has ruled in their favor re their open records request. Government must be an open book, no matter how important or trivial the issue. The arrogance of our elected officials is almost boundless...but not in this case.


Davidson County Chancellor Claudia Bonnyman this morning ruled in favor the Nashville Scene in its attempt to shed light on the current effort to revise the state's methods of carrying out the death penalty.

As recently reported, the Scene filed a lawsuit against the Tennessee Department of Corrections after the dapartment and its commission, George Little, denied an open-records request from the alternative weekly newspaper seeking to lift the hood, so to speak, on the execution review process.
