Minn. Court of Appeals rules for newspaper in public records fight

From Duluth News Tribune:

The Minnesota Court of Appeals unanimously ruled in favor of the Tower Timberjay on Tuesday in the small newspaper’s continuing quest to obtain records from Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls for work the company did in helping to build new facilities for the St. Louis County school district.

The dispute goes back to late 2010, when the newspaper requested to view the contracts between Johnson Controls and Architectural Resources Inc., which did the architectural work for some of the nearly $80 million in school buildings for the district.
