NEWS RELEASE: WKU journalist takes home $2,000 prize for investigative reporting on campus sexual harassment

Western Kentucky's student newspaper is honored at a college media conference for its persistent public-records digging, which provoked the university to file a "reverse FOIA" lawsuit seeking to block disclosure of information about how the college responds to sexual harassment complaints. 

Western Kentucky University sued their student paper. Attorneys on both sides are now arguing their cases.

Following in the footsteps of the University of Kentucky, Western Kentucky University on Monday sued its student newspaper, the College Heights Herald, over access to records detailing faculty sexual misconduct investigations.
