7News Investigators Win Ruling Over Insurance Records

A Denver judge has ruled that Pinnacol Assurance must release records documenting expenses of a luxury golf trip for the company’s executives. Pinnacol had rejected KMGH-Channel 7’s request for these records because of, um, it would make them look bad give business secrets to competitors. This is great news for Channel 7, as well as Denver journalists.

The Denver Post has more:

The ruling from Denver District Judge Morris B. Hoffman gave a victory to KMGH-Channel 7, which had requested expense records for board members and Pinnacol executives who went on a luxury golf and wine-tasting outing in Pebble Beach, Calif., in May.

Though Pinnacol had previously released records of such trips, it rejected the 7News request, saying doing so would hurt its business operations. Pinnacol is a quasi-governmental agency that operates similar to a private business but enjoys certain tax advantages and its board is appointed by the governor.
