COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio Supreme Court has sided with Ohio State University in a lawsuit brought by ESPN over records it sought in connection to the university's football scandal and NCAA investigation.
ESPN had asked the Supreme Court to order the release of records related to the forced resignation of football coach Jim Tressel and star quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
The court on Tuesday unanimously ruled that for the most part Ohio State properly shielded records as either protected by federal privacy laws or attorney-client privilege.
The court said in a few cases Ohio State must remove certain names from documents which it then must provide ESPN.
The court also denied ESPN's request for attorney fees.
Several national education groups had sided with Ohio State.
