HARTFORD (AP) — Connecticut’s Freedom of Information Commission on Friday denied a bid by Newtown officials to postpone a hearing on a request by The Associated Press for records related to the gunman in December’s school shooting.
An attorney for the town asked for a continuance until after the state legislature adjourns on June 5, citing a pending bill that would leave release of some material up to the victims’ families. But the commission said the hearing will take place as scheduled on June 3.
