State and Metro Nashville lawyers are arguing against the release of the Vanderbilt University rape case files that remain under seal. The Tennessean, eight media organizations and the Tennessee Coalition for Open Government filed suit against Metro in 2013 seeking records in the hands of police, including text messages between Vanderbilt football players and coaches. The Tennessee Court of Appeals partially ruled against the media coalition, but the state Supreme Court has agreed to review the case, setting a May 28 date for oral arguments.
