On appeal, the Montana Supreme Court found that there were no privacy rights which exceeded the prisoners' right to review the files. Thus, Mont. Coast. art. II § 9 required the Board to give them access to the files. On that basis, the trial court's dismissal of the case was reversed. See: Worden v. Montana Board of Pardons and Parole, 289 Mont. 459; 962 P.2d 1157 (1998).
