The Springfield News-Leader and television station KYTV have filed an open records lawsuit to get access to therecords. Attorney General Jay Nixon says the records should not be secret. The judge made the records a secret when one of the law firms in line to get some of the $111-million in attorneys fees sued the lead attorney in the case.
