On appeal, the Court of Appeals of Oregon held, under the PDL, that: (1) some psychiatric reports, if released, could compromise DOC operations, but to the extent that redaction can avoid that, they should be disclosed; (2) internal parole board memoranda of an advisory nature, or which consist only of factual data are subject to disclosure; and (3) documents may not be withheld simply because their content might prove embarrassing to DOC or parole board personnel. See: Turner v. Reed, 538 P.2d 373 (1975).
