ENID — A Grady County judge has granted an Enid newspaper's request to unseal court records from a dismissed perjury charge against an Enid attorney.
District Judge Richard Van Dyck on Tuesday granted a motion by the Enid News & Eagle to intervene in the case involving Eric Edwards. The newspaper reports Van Dyck ruled the records should be unsealed and access given to the public.
The perjury charge was filed in May and the case was sealed that day. The newspaper filed a request to unseal the records, saying the documents should be open to the public.
A judge dismissed the charge against Edwards in July.
Enid News & Eagle publisher Jeff Funk said the newspaper is pleased with the judge's decision.
