On appeal, the Supreme Court of Montana found that since the city disclosed the documents at issue, the disclosure issue was moot. The Court also found that the newspaper was entitled to fees incurred up to the time that the unredacted copies were disclosed. Thus, the Court remanded the case with instructions to dismiss with prejudice after an evidentiary nearing to determine the amount of fees to award the newspaper. See: Havre Daily News v. City of Havre, 333 Mont. 331; 142 P.3d 854 (2006).
