KY. appeal hearing granted in Leonard Lawson open records case

From Courier-Journal:

FRANKFORT, KY. (Nov 25, 2012) — The Kentucky Supreme Court has agreed to hear the Open Records Act appeal of road contractor Leonard Lawson, who wants a 1983 statement he made to investigators about bid rigging to remain secret.


At issue is a statement that Lawson made to investigators of the attorney general’s office about bid rigging for state road contracts near the beginning of his rise as a politically influential state highway contractor.
