The Texas State Board of Chiropractic Examiners sued Greg Abbott, Attorney General of the State of Texas, seeking a declaration that certain documents in the Board's possession are exempt from the disclosure requirements of the Texas Public Information Act. The trial court rendered summary judgment that the documents were not exempt. The requested documents are exempt from mandatory disclosure under the PIA. The Board was not required to release the requestor's chiropractic records that were contained in an investigation file related to a complaint about a chiropractor licensed by the Board. The trial court's judgment is reversed and rendered. Austin Court of Appeals, No. 03-11-00735-CV, 01-16-2013.
