Enid Newspaper Requests Open Records (Jul 18, 2012)

ENID, Okla. (AP) - A judge has scheduled a July 30 hearing on a newspaper's request to unseal court records in a perjury case that was dismissed against an Enid attorney.

The Enid News & Eagle sued after a judge sealed the court case the same day charges were filed against Eric Edwards.

Edwards had been charged with felony perjury, but a judge dismissed the charge this week at the request of District Attorney David Prater, who was appointed to the case after Major County District Attorney Hollis Thorp recused.

The newspaper's attorney, Michael Minnis, argues that sealing the records violates the state's open records law.

The News & Eagle reports that it requested a copy of the order sealing the case but was denied because the entire court record is sealed.
