Access to Public Records: Whose are They?

The JCU chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists will be co-sponsoring a panel discussion on Tuesday, March 11, at 7 p.m. in the Dolan Science Center’s Pellegrene Room (Rooms A202/A203). This event will address a recent incident when a reporter for the Northeast Ohio Media Group was denied access to public documents by the Cleveland Heights Police. The panel will include the reporter, the Cleveland Heights Police Chief, and the attorney who represented the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Along with the JCU chapter of SPJ, the event will also be co-sponsored by SPJ’s Cleveland Professional Chapter, and the Tim Russert Department of Communication and Theatre Arts.
