Lawrence-Journal World FOIA Request Runs Into KU Student Privacy Rights

The Lawrence Journal-World recently sought information on fraternity hazing from the University of Kansas under the state’s Freedom of Information Act. But the documents the newspaper received were so heavily redacted as to shed almost no light on the issue. 

Guests:

  • Sara Shepherd is a reporter for the Lawrence Journal-World who has written about this situation.
  • Adam Goldstein is an Attorney Advocate with the Student Press Law Center based in Washington, D.C.
  • Peggy Lowe is an investigative reporter for KCUR.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region. Email me at lisa@kcur.org or follow me on Twitter @larodrig.
