Forest Carr reports:

Many of the so-far secret Pima College documents about its most dangerous student will soon be public. Pima College issued a statement late Wednesday afternoon saying that it will not appeal a judge’s ruling ordering the college to release certain disputed emails regarding accused mass shooter Jared Lee Loughner.

“The court has spoken and as far as I am concerned the issue regarding these documents is settled,” the statement quoted Chancellor Roy Flores as saying. “We do not intend to appeal the court’s ruling and will supply the 255 pages as quickly as possible.”

As KGUN9 News has been reporting, The Arizona Republic sued the college to obtain records related to Loughner that the college has been withholding. In refusing to release the documents, the college repeatedly cited a federal privacy law known as FERPA as grounds to keep the documents from public view.
