LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A newspaper says it is asking a judge to
hold officials with the Cabinet for Health and Family Services in
contempt for redacting files related to child deaths before
The Courier-Journal said Wednesday the motion will ask Franklin
County Circuit Judge Philip Shepherd to find that child-welfare
officials did not comply with his order to release the records
because they were heavily redacted.
The Courier-Journal and the Lexington Herald-Leader sued to get
information in the files. The cabinet initially refused but
relented after Gov. Steve Beshear intervened last month and told
the cabinet to hand over the files.
The cabinet released its first batch of records Monday while
also filing a motion to withhold more information that it had
previously agreed to.
