A superior court judge in Atlanta said the city’s bids to lure a NASCAR hall of fame and the 2009 Super Bowl must be public. Two business groups spearheading the efforts, the Chamber of Commerce and Central Atlanta Progress, argued they are private organizations and not subject to public records laws. Georgia Attorney General Judge Thurbert Baker disagreed because public money was being pledged to the efforts. He filed suit. (11/10/05)
