Ohio’s Supreme Court ruled that the home addresses of state employees do not meet the definition of a public record and may be withheld from disclosure. The Columbus Dispatch, which had requested and obtained state payroll databases for nearly a decade, sued when it was denied the information in 2003. But the court said its ruling applied only to the addresses and it was not otherwise withdrawing from its liberal interpretation of the state’s open records law. (9/7/05)
