Judge: Private prisons subject to open records laws
A Travis County judge has ruled that private prison firms are subject to the Texas Public Information Act. See Techdirt and the Courthouse News Service for more details. Congrats to Prison Legal News and the Texas Civil Rights Project on an important legal victory. See a related press release and the motion for summary judgment. UPDATE: Here's the judge's one-page ruling in the case. Thanks to a commenter for sending it along.
