DUI Lawsuit Tossed From Federal Court 

U.S. District Court Judge Christina Reiss threw out portions of a lawsuit pertaining to  whether the state police played political favorites by releasing copies of some roadside video stops and not those of others.

At an hourlong hearing in federal court in Burlington, Reiss determined that the court didn't have jurisdiction over whether the state violated Vermont's public-records laws, but she did reserve the right to rule on other aspects of the complaint brought by attorney John Franco. Largely, she said she'd be willing to determine whether the state ran afoul of the First Amendment by playing political favorites in releasing the records related to one person and not another.
