From Arkansas Times Blog:

The Arkansas Supreme Court today granted an emergency stay sought by the city of Little Rock to block Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen's order that it release information about Police Lt. David Hudson's history of use of force. That record is being sought by Keith Hall, defense lawyer for a man punched repeatedly in the face by Hudson before an arrest at Ferneau restaurant.

Hudson has filed reports at least four times on using force in arrests.
