Notes of Decisions

Failure of legislature to include reference to courts and court records such as those particularly named in ORS 192.005 (Definitions for ORS 192.005 to 192.170) tells against applica­tion of these sec­tions to courts. State ex rel KOIN-TV v. Olsen, 300 Or 392, 711 P2d 966 (1985)

School districts blanket policy exempting public records from disclosure without individualized showing, violates public records law and is therefore unenforceable. Guard Publishing Co. v. Lane County School Dist., 310 Or 32, 791 P2d 854 (1990)
