Stenehjem: NDSU foundation broke open records law

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state attorney general says the North Dakota State University Development Foundation broke the law when it failed to provide a citizen with a copy of the group's expenditures.

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says in an opinion that the foundation must release the records that conservative blogger Rob Port requested under the state's open records law.

Stenehjem says the foundation denied the request "on incorrect legal grounds.'' He says the foundation "delayed its response by months, even after acknowledging that it had responsive records.''

The NDSU Development Foundation is a nonprofit. But Stenehjem says the foundation "is a public entity subject to open records laws because it performs governmental functions on behalf of NDSU.''
