The Ohio Supreme Court decided largely in favor of Ohio State University in an open records lawsuit brought by ESPN pertaining to the 2011 football scandal, CBS News reported. ESPN filed the suit -- which held that the university improperly cited the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act in withholding or removing names from documents -- in July. The court said the university mostly adhered to FERPA, but it did order the university to release a few records that had been withheld entirely as long as students' names were redacted. A university statement issued Tuesday said, "Ohio State appreciates the clarity given today by the Ohio Supreme Court affirming the university's interpretation of federal student privacy laws."
