CIVIL (INJUNCTION): The Courier-Journal, Inc.; Lexington Herald-Leader Co.; & Associated Press v. Leonard Lawson; Commonwealth of Kentucky (SC 3/18/2010)

The Courier-Journal, Inc.; Lexington Herald-Leader Co.; & Associated Press v. Leonard Lawson; Commonwealth of Kentucky
2009-SC-000756-I March 18, 2010 Opinion by Chief Justice Minton. All sitting; all concur.

Movants filed for CR 65.07 relief in the Court of Appeals from a temporary injunction issued by the circuit court which forbade the release of a proffer of evidence made by Respondent Lawson in 1983. The Supreme Court held that the Office of the Attorney General—as custodian of the record sought—was an indispensable party to the action, and must be named as a party by the Movants. The Court declined to reach the merits of the dispute and affirmed the dismissal of the petition by the Court of Appeals.
