Feds encourage Barren County Fiscal Court to appeal

GLASGOW — The appeal of the Barren County Fiscal Court against releasing documents from an investigation of the Barren County Detention Center is continuing, with encouragement from the U.S. Department of Justice.

“The Fiscal Court fulfilled the expressed and ongoing request of the United States Department of Justice by filing the appeal,” said Jim Deckard, attorney representing the fiscal court, in a statement. “We have already been able to narrow the issues between the various interests, and the Court of Appeals will quickly provide another opportunity in an upcoming pre-hearing conference with the lawyers.”

Deckard and Jeremy Rogers, attorney for the Glasgow Daily Times, appeared in Barren County Circuit Court on Monday morning to speak on a motion in the case to enforce a court order ordering the fiscal court to turn over the documents to the Daily Times with redactions of legally allowed information. The motion, by Rogers, requested an order of contempt if the documents were not produced, according to court documents.

“The only wrinkle is the appeal,” Rogers told the court.
