Judge rejects state police union's request to keep names of officers involved in fake ticket audit sealed

A judge has rejected a request from the Connecticut State Police Union to keep the names of officers involved in the fake ticket audit under wraps.
There are currently 26,000 potentially fake traffic tickets under investigation.
The union wanted a judge to seal the names of 130 troopers flagged in the report.
Thursday's ruling means the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission will make the decision, if state police deny the request to reveal names.
News 12 Connecticut reached out to the union president who said in part, "We respect the judicial process. We are reviewing the judge's decision to determine whether it will be necessary to file an appeal. However, tomorrow we will be petitioning the Freedom of Information Commission."
