Media Request To Open Bryan Stanley Files Mostly Denied
A complicated court ruling on the question of whether Bryan Stanley's court records will be released to the public.
A state appeals court has affirmed a judge's order to deny media access to some records, but a slightly edited version of one record might be released. The La Crosse Tribune has sued in court to get information about Stanley's medical condition after his release from the Mendota institute. He was committed to the state hospital for 20 years after killing three men at an Onalaska church in 1985. The appeals court decision comes out the same week that Stanley has been sent back to Mendota for treatment, after experiencing some 'anxiety' recently.
