A packed courtroom listened to arguments Monday in the legal dispute over access to records in the Vanderbilt University rape case that led to charges against four former football players. At issue is how the state's laws on open records, fair trials and victims' privacy rights intersect as cases move through the courts, the Tennessean reports. Key players in the suit also argued over which court should hear the case. Both issues will be decided by the Tennessee Court of Appeals in the coming weeks.
