LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The University of Kentucky will appeal an opinion that determined the school violated the state’s Open Records Act and the Open Meetings Act.

Local news outlets report that University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto made the announcement in a campus-wide email Monday.

The school will appeal two opinions by the office of Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear. The first opinion found that the university had violated the open records law after turning down a request from the Kentucky Kernel for documents related to a sexual harassment case. The second opinion found that the university violated the Open Meetings Act when it conducted business but did not keep minutes at a Board of Trustees dinner.

Capilouto says the privacy of community members is more important than transparency in this case.
