Judge Sides with UK in Open Records Dispute

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- A judge rules in favor of the University of Kentucky in a case involving its student run newspaper and a sexual harassment case. 

The Kentucky Kernel had sued the school to get documents related to a sexual harassment case against a former UK professor. 

A Fayette Circuit Judge ruled against the paper, saying the documents are protected by a federal student privacy law. 

The attorney general issued an opinion, saying UK had violated the state's open-records law.

 The professor has since resigned, but did not admit to the allegations.
