SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — The town of Edgewood and other defendants are appealing a ruling that they must pay the widow of man killed by police for not giving her documents she requested quickly enough.

Erin Noll, filed a civil complaint in Santa Fe District Court in November 2015 asking a judge to force the town, the Department of Public Safety and the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office to release records related to the shooting death of her husband, Ethan Noll. The sheriff’s office was later dropped from the lawsuit.

Ethan Noll was shot and killed by State Police in April 2015.

A Santa Fe District Court judge last week ordered the defendants to pay more than $22,000 in court costs and legal fees to Erin Noll because they violated the Inspection of Public Records Act by not promptly releasing the records.
