NASHVILLE — Nashville officials on Thursday again denied a request for records related to the investigation of a June 23 incident in which four football players at Vanderbilt University are accused of raping an unconscious female student.
The Tennessean and its attorney are weighing their response.
“The Tennessean disagrees with Metro’s refusal to provide records,” attorney Robb Harvey said. “We have explained our reasons for our objections, but in our view they have failed to respond to those arguments and we are considering the next steps.”
The Tennessean has asked for records, including materials prepared by the university, while reporting on the case, in which video and photo evidence has been ordered kept secret by an agreement signed by prosecutors and attorneys for all four defendants.
