FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The office of Kentucky’s attorney general has found that the University of Louisville Foundation wrongly withheld records about conflicts of interests and staff salaries.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/2aJ2Q95 ) reports that the office ruled on Aug. 5 that the foundation improperly denied records to the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting under the Kentucky Open Records Act.

Assistant Attorney General Amye Bensenhaver said in an opinion that the foundation told KyCIR that the request about the conflicts of interests was burdensome. Bensenhaver also said that the foundation refused to supply salary records for its employees because it said the request was overly broad.

Bensenhaver says the foundation failed to support any of its claims.

The foundation can appeal the opinion of the office to circuit court.
