(AP) The state Supreme Court says a newspaper has a right to complete copies of Juneau County's legal bills. The Juneau County Star-Times in 2010 asked the county for legal bills from an investigation into a former sheriff's deputy. The law firm that handled the probe released redacted bills to the newspaper through the county.
A state appeals court ruled in 2011 that the Star-Times deserved complete copies under Wisconsin's open records law. The Supreme Court ruled 4-3 Tuesday the bills are public records because they were produced during the course of the law firm's work for the county.

An attorney representing the county didn't immediately return messages.
(AP) The Green Bay Packers take renovation plans for the Lambeau Field Atrium to the stadium district board. Team officials have talked generally about atrium improvements, but nothing definitively. Those improvements include moving the Packers Hall of Fame from the basement to a more visible location.
Packers CEO Mark Murphy is expected to present the improvements to the board Tuesday. They may also include renovations for the Pro Shop and Curly's Pub.
Packers' spokesman Aaron Popkey says that team officials will also outline how the project will affect stadium scheduling.
(AP) The Wisconsin Better Business Bureau is warning Packer fans to be wary of scammers selling playoff tickets. The bureau says sports fans can be easily scammed when buying tickets outside the stadium, on the street or through online auctions, classified ads and bulletin boards.
Wisconsin BBB President Randall Hoth says fans can get burned by purchasing counterfeit tickets or paying in advance for tickets that never arrive. The BBB recommends checking with its database that includes reputable, secondary market ticket firms. It also recommends looking for the BBB logo on broker's websites and to click on it to ensure it's real.
If using an online auction site, they recommend looking for sellers with a recent and long history of satisfied customers.
