A Tennessee Supreme Court case could determine the scope of the state’s public records law, and Bonelaw attorneys Edward M. Yarbrough and Alex Little argued against disclosure of such records. They represent the victim in the highly publicized Vanderbilt rape case. Last year, a conglomeration of media outlets in the state argued for access to records reviewed in the police investigation in that case. The government said laws regarding procedure in criminal courts and victims’ privacy laws keep those records shielded from public release. Yarbrough and Little are advocating for protection of victims in criminal cases.
