The Wilmington, Del., News Journal and the Associated Press filed suit to force Delaware officials to make public autopsy records on a Rehoboth Beach businessman who died in a car fire. The state Attorney General’s Office has said the files are exempt from disclosure because they deal with active investigations. News Journal Editor David Ledford noted that the autopsy records have been open for many years, until this instance where the widow objected. (9/278/05)
