LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A district judge has told the Nebraska Judicial Branch to release documents on how judges are trained to handle child custody disputes.

A Lincoln doctor requested the records in May. Dr. Les Veskrna is executive director of the Children’s Rights Council of Iowa and Nebraska, and he says he has concerns that the information used to train judges.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1We3ieW ) that the Nebraska court administrator denied Veskrna’s request, saying the records weren’t subject to disclosure under state public records law.

Veskrna sued for the release of the documents, and earlier this month the judge ruled that most of the documents are public records and must be released.
