Utah AR appeal for information

University of Utah students are appealing to 3rd District Court for names of campus animal researchers after the U. and the State Records Committee denied them the information.

Katie Patterson, a member of Utah Primate Freedom, asked the court to intervene after the U. and subsequently the State Records Committee declined students' request under the state open meetings law for names of researchers at the Animal Resource Center.

The U. gave the students only titles and salaries.

"We want to know who is responsible exactly for what," Patterson said.
On its Web site, the animal rights group Animal Liberation Front earlier this year detailed the vandalism its members previously committed at U. researcher Audie Gene Leventhal's Salt Lake City home, including painting the words "Cat Killer" on his home and throwing glass-eating acid onto his windows.
