Judge rules against Port of Coos Bay in lawsuit

The International Port of Coos Bay is now reviewing its open records policies after losing an open records lawsuit.

The Sierra Club sued the port, after it did not waive legal and reproduction fees for documents the group wanted.

The club says they wanted the documents to make sure the port was compliant with environmental standards.

A Coos County circuit judge ruled in favor of the Sierra Club, saying it should have access to the documents it asked for free of charge.
