ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's attorney general says the state's flagship university is violating public records laws by withholding documents that should be readily assessable.

A letter sent Friday to the University of New Mexico noted that the school has repeatedly violated records laws and did so yet again this year by refusing to release documents requested by the Albuquerque Journal.

University spokeswoman Cinnamon Blair told the Journal they received the letter and plan to release the records.

The Journal requested self-assessment reports created by university officials as part of the accreditation process. The university called them privileged and blocked public access.

The letter said that clearly "disregarded clearly-established New Mexico precedent" and violated the law.

Last year the attorney general found a "disturbing pattern of concealment and deliberate misrepresentation," by the university.
