AG rules UK should release records in 2 cases

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) – The Kentucky Attorney General’s office says the state’s flagship university should release records in cases dealing with animal research and cancer statistics.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1N4HvBc) reports the opinions released Monday dealt with two separate requests for information from the University of Kentucky.

One was a 2014 request from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals seeking "approved protocols for the use of animals in teaching exercises." The other was a March request from an attorney seeking statistics from the Kentucky Cancer Registry, which is housed at UK.

The rulings carry the weight of law unless they are appealed to Circuit Court.
