Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita is denying an open records request filed by Indy Politics publisher Abdul-Hakim Shabazz, concerning documents as to why Shabazz was barred from Rokita’s news conferences.

Rokita says Shabazz was denied the records because he has filed suit against the Office and he can get those through discovery.

Note, Shabazz filed his records request back in late October, months before litigation was filed.

Shabazz has filed a complaint with the Indiana Public Access Counselor.
