PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota judge has blocked Gov. Kristi Noem from releasing documents and video in the investigation of the state’s attorney general for striking and killing a man with his car.
Defense attorneys for Jason Ravnsborg, the state’s top law enforcement agent, argued that the release of video of his interviews with investigators and other documents violated his right to a fair trial.
A circuit court judge ordered Noem to halt plans to release more documents from the crash investigation, the Argus Leader reported.
Noem had tried to ratchet up pressure on the attorney general to resign earlier Thursday.
