A judge has dismissed the public records lawsuit filed by The Oregonian newspaper against Grant County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Glenn Palmer.

Grant County Circuit Court Judge William D. Cramer Jr. dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice Nov. 3, though the dismissal does not preclude The Oregonian “from submitting a request for attorney fees and costs.”

The Oregonian and its reporter Les Zaitz filed a complaint against the sheriff’s office, Palmer and Deputy Sally DeFord in May requesting that the court declare certain records to be public records and to compel their disclosure.

Neither Palmer nor The Oregonian have responded to emailed questions about the lawsuit dismissal as of Tuesday morning.
