LARAMIE, Wyo. — The Albany County school district says it spent $43,000 on legal fees in a lawsuit against the Laramie Daily Boomerang over access to records of an employee survey.

Albany County School District No. 1 released the figure after denying two previous requests for the information in December and January. School officials said then the lawsuit was still pending.

The lawsuit was settled in March with the school district agreeing to make redacted comments from the survey available to the public.

Officials agreed to make an unredacted version available to a teacher group if members signed a confidentiality agreement.
