A senior judge from Cumberland County has upheld a state Open Records ruling ordering Mayor Eric Papenfuse's City Hall to comply with a series of information requests filed by former Mayor Stephen Reed.

Reed, who is fighting criminal charges alleging that he broke laws in funding his quest to cast Harrisburg as a city of museums, is seeking three lengthy sets of documents dating to his tenure in office.

Reed's attorney, Henry E. Hockeimer Jr., requested the paperwork from the city in late July, after current Attorney General Kathleen Kane filed nearly 500 criminal counts against Reed following a lengthy grand jury probe.
