Sandy Hook Massacre the focus of one of two major Conn. FOI cases

From the New England First Amendment Coalition:

Virtually every news organization in Connecticut has joined a friend of the court action to the state Supreme Court asking it to overturn a lower court restriction on how much information police must release in a criminal investigation.

At the same time, The News-Times of Danbury, joined by The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Associated Press and Gannett Westchester newspapers are asking a Connecticut Superior Court judge to unseal search warrants and all related court records in the Sandy Hook School massacre. The prosecutor opposes unsealing the warrants even though the shooter is dead and there will be no prosecution.
