A list containing the names of approximately 250 New Hampshire law enforcement officers who may have credibility issues must be made public, according to an order issued by a Superior Court judge, New Hampshire Public Radio reports.

The N.H. Center for Public Interest Journalism, along with several newspapers and the ACLU of New Hampshire, sued the N.H. Department of Justice, arguing it must release the so-called “Laurie List” under the state’s Right to Know laws. The Department of Justice countered that the list, which is also known as the Exculpatory Evidence Schedule, or EES, is confidential because it contains personnel-related information, which is generally shielded from disclosure.
