Western Kentucky University is asking for a stay in a case involving an Open Records dispute between the university and the Kentucky Attorney General's office.
In court documents, WKU has asked for the stay until a similar case involving the University of Kentucky is resolved.
WKU is suing the college's student newspaper after denying an open records request for paperwork about 20 sexual misconduct investigations among university employees in the past four years. The Kentucky Attorney General has intervened in the case.
The motion says by ordering a stay in the case, it will save time and reduce litigation expenses.
