News-Banner's open records request denied

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has denied an open records request filed by The News-Banner.

The newspaper filed the request after Ossian Police Chief Dave Rigney confirmed in September he filed a complaint with the agency regarding "the actions and the comments that have been made" by the town's police commissioners.

The News-Banner had sought details about Rigney's complaint from the EEOC, which enforces federal employment discrimination laws.

The denial of the request was sent by the EEOC's district office in Indianapolis.
