West Virginia Police Report of Fight Between Juveniles is a Disclosable Public Record Under State FOIA
On appeal, the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia ruled that since the records could be disclosed in redacted form, so as to protect the juveniles’ identities, they were disclosable public records under the FOIA. On that basis, the Court reversed the trial court and remanded the case for further proceedings. See: Ogden Newspapers, Inc. v. City of Williamstown, 192 W.Va. 648; 453 S.E.2d 631 (1994).
