On Friday, an appeals court ruled that the names of two Cincinnati police officers injured in a 2010 shootout that left an Iron Horsemen motorcycle club member dead can stay secret.
The Cincinnati Enquirer sued Tom Streicher, then the city’s police chief, for withholding names of the injured officers, which the newspaper believes should be released under public records laws and are needed to examine further how the incident was handled.
Mr. Streicher said the names should be withheld because of fears the officers could be subject to retaliation.
