The inquiry we confront right here is not a close one, the court wrote, ruling that the state legislation clearly claims search warrants are public records.

In a statement to ProPublica Wednesday, the CEO, Bill Gassen, waited that remark and added, We are grateful for Mr. Sanford's generosity and the many ways his dedication to Sanford Health will benefit our area for generations to find.
