A Federal Court, citing the U.S. Constitution privileges and immunities clause, rules that a states’ public records law can’t exclude non residents from requesting and receiving state public records.

UPDATE: The Delaware Attorney General is poised to appeal this decision, according to this news report. The AG’s site is mum on the whole matter.
