The University of Kentucky has filed an appeal in a case involving an open records request made by WUKY.

The station first reported in December that UK Healthcare had stopped doing pediatric heart surgeries and placed the program under review. Last month the Kentucky Attorney General ruled that UK violated the state’s Open Records Act by refusing to release information related to the surgery program.

Since then UK has also denied a similar open records request made by the Lexington Herald-Leader.
