ACLU of Utah Foundation and Disability Law Center v. Davis County.
On Thursday, March 25, Judge David Connors of Utah’s Second Judicial District Court ruled that Davis County must release to the ACLU of Utah and Disability Law Center the Utah Jail Standards—a set of standards that Davis County and other counties across the State have used to guide the operations of county jails. The ruling means that, despite their copyrighted status, the Utah Jail Standards are still records under the Utah Government Records Access and Management Act, and that the County had no valid basis for withholding the records.
