Davidson County Chancellor Carol McCoy ruled today that the state Department of Children’s Services (DCS) must turn over to the media at no cost records from the case files of 50 children who died or nearly died after the agency became involved with them. DCS must bear the cost of redacting identifying information from the records, while the media organizations will pay the cost of making copies, Knoxnews reports.
