Denver Publishing Co. v. Dreyfus

In Denver Publishing Co. v. Dreyfus, 184 Colo. 288, 520 P.2d 104 (1974), plaintiff requested the autopsy reports of 14 persons who had died as a result of encounters with the police or had committed suicide while incarcerated in jail. The trial court directed the custodian to make all autopsy reports available except three. Although plaintiff did not cross appeal as to the three reports to which access was denied, the supreme court noted that the trial court properly relied upon the exception at issue here to deny plaintiff's application for inspection of those reports.
