Open Record Law Applies to Athletic Association

A Davidson County chancellor ruled on Friday that the Tennessee Secondary Athletic Association (TSSAA) is a public entity and subject to open record laws, The Tennessean reports. The group had been sued by the Nashville City Paper, which is seeking access to records about financial aid and sports eligibility requirements at Montgomery Bell Academy. The paper was working on a story about possible violations of recruiting rules. TSSAA says it will appeal the ruling.
