Blaine County Sheriff Speaks About Court Win Against CNN


By KMVT News

Blaine County, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) The Blaine County Sheriff is speaking out after Tuesday's win in court against CNN.

Sheriff Gene Ramsey says he was confident he was doing the right thing.

"I was pretty comfortable doing a denial, even though it was a very touchy subject and any time you do a denial you want to be on solid ground. I’m sure CNN didn't realize who I was or what I'm about,” he said.

The media giant cable news network filed a lawsuit against the county after the sheriff's office would not hand over information on an investigation involving the Bergdahls.

The county claimed the request is an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, protected under Idaho law, and the judge agreed.
