An Oregon appeals court has ruled for an animal rights group seeking public records, saying the cost must be reasonable and sending the case back to a lower court. In Defense of Animals asked for records of care of animals at a university primate center. The center said the request involved 6,000 animals over a period of years and compiling and copying the records would cost $151,000. (4/25/05)
