CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A state district judge has ruled against the Wyoming Tribune Eagle in a lawsuit over access to public records.

Laramie County District Judge Thomas Campbell issued an order Monday denying the newspaper’s motion for summary judgment.

The Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1SUtTO4 ) that the case stems from a records request it made to Laramie County School District 1. The request sought school board member emails.

The district wants to charge the newspaper $110 for expenses. The newspaper objected to the cost.

Campbell ruled that Wyoming law allows reasonable costs to be charged for records.

Tribune Eagle Publisher Scott Walker said he was disappointed in Campbell’s ruling and is contemplating taking the lawsuit to the state Supreme Court.

LCSD1 attorney David Evans and Superintendent John Lyttle declined to comment on Campbell’s ruling.
