Hearing set for lawsuit seeking release of indictment in JonBenet Ramsey case

From the Daily Camera (Boulder): A hearing for a lawsuit filed by a Daily Camera reporter and a press advocacy group seeking the release of the indictment secretly voted on by the JonBenet Ramsey grand jury in 1999 has been set for 1:30 p.m. Oct. 11.

Camera reporter Charlie Brennan and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press filed the lawsuit in Boulder District Court, citing the Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act in an effort to compel Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett to release the indictment.

The Camera reported earlier this year that the grand jury voted to indict the slain 6-year-old’s parents on charges of child abuse resulting in death, but that then-District Attorney Alex Hunter refused to sign the document and prosecute the Ramseys.

The Camera is not a plaintiff in the complaint, but does support the lawsuit.
