911 transcripts

    After the Press Herald was denied access to 911 recordings and transcripts related to a fatal shooting where police response was called into question, the newspaper sued the state. Maine’s Supreme Judicial Court ruled unanimously in favor of the Press Herald, ruling that the public has a right to the transcripts. The ruling overturned a longstanding practice by police in Maine of withholding 911 transcripts from the public.
