The appointment calendars of six U.S. Department of Agriculture officials are not public records because they contain a mix of official and personal items and were not required by the agency to be maintained, a federal district court in Washington ruled. A public interest group had sought the calendars in a search for evidence that the food safety officials had met with representatives of the meet and poultry industry. (8/5/05)
