Judge blocks release of some Casa Bonita documents

FOX31: A judge ruled on Tuesday that some of Casa Bonita’s public records can stay secret.

As FOX31 reported on Monday, Casa Bonita’s new owners filed for an injunction to stop Lakewood from releasing some of the restaurant’s records to the public. The company’s lawyers argued the documents include “sensitive schematic and security information” that’s protected from disclosure under state open records law.

FOX31’s Carisa Scott listened in on the hearing Tuesday. A judge said the ownership group, The Beautiful Opco, can limit the number of public records the municipality of Lakewood will release. A judge ordered the city can release everything except for 121 records.
