The Echo’s petition to the Minnesota Supreme Court to review the Court of Appeal’s ruling was denied Oct. 24.

The lawsuit was filed by the Echo against the St. Louis Park school district Jan. 18, 2016, alleging the school district failed to follow the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act in refusing to provide security footage from the alleged hijab incident with a freshman student Nov. 14, 2016.       

The District Court ruled against the Echo Oct. 7, 2017. The Echo’s appeal to the Minnesota Court of Appeals affirmed this ruling Aug. 13.

This leaves the District Court’s ruling against the Echo, stating the video footage withheld was nonpublic educational data, as the final ruling. The ruling deemed the district’s actions were acceptable. 

Despite the court’s opinion against the publication, the Echo is grateful for the Robins Kaplan team who helped them fight the case the past two years.
