NewsChannel 5 Nashville has filed a lawsuit after public records requests for documents related to the affair of former Tennessee Bureau of Investigations acting chief Jason Locke were denied. In her denial, Deputy Attorney General Janet Kleinfelter said the records were of interest to a criminal investigation. The TV station’s attorney said that the request was made prior to an investigation being opened and that the records don’t fit the legal definition of “investigative records.”
