Jackson Sun wins Open Records Case-Congrats!!


The Sun was originally seeking access to three groups of information:

  • Field interview "cards," which are police files created when officers stop citizens, question them and sometimes even photograph them without making an arrest.
  • A Statement of Operations that showed information about losses suffered by the Diamond Jaxx's owners that would relieve their contractual obligations to the city.
  • The release of 911 tapes or a transcript of the tapes from the 2005 Tennessee Department of Transportation garage shooting involving David Lynn Jordan.
