Here in North Dakota the High School Activities Assn refuses to issue press passes or access passes to internet reporting sites and reps.
We have a High School Sports site that covers the State, has reporting spots with a number of radio stations and does a good job. Can't get access passes for tournaments.
We have BEK sports TV broadcast network. A cable network that broadcasts a few hundred games a year. They also broadcast a State Tournament last year - and all their camera operators and people had to PAY to get into the venuw - the Assn would not issue passes - even tho BEK PAID the High School Assn for broadcast rights to the event.
I know some States have already been through this. Where do I find information on court cases and policies so we can put it together to present to our State association? Would like to do that before hitting them with a few dozen open records requests prior to filing legal action to get this squared away.
