GREAT WHITE Nightclub Fire: Attorney General's Office Opposes Release Of Station Fire Material

November 17, 2006

The Associated Press has issued the following report:

The attorney general's office said yesterday it was refusing for now to release to the media the evidence collected during the investigation into the deadly Station nightclub fire.

The office responded yesterday to a public records request filed last month by The Providence Journal, said Michael Healey, a spokesman for Attorney General Patrick Lynch.

The Associated Press and The Boston Globe submitted separate requests later in October.

Healey said the office was forced to balance the privacy rights of victims' families against the public's right to information about the fire [at a GREAT WHITE concert], which killed 100 people in February 2003.

He said the office was proposing that a judge schedule a court date for victims' families and others affected by the fire to state their objections to the information request.
