DENVER (AP) – The Colorado Supreme Court has ruled that prosecutors can withhold records that were used to justify a police shooting if they involved opinions to determine if the officer was negligent.

Prosecutors turned over some of the records, but withheld a computer presentation and documents used to review the evidence.

Brittney Angel tried to get the records after she was charged in Colorado Springs with eluding, evidence tampering and concealing a death in 2011. Her attorneys wanted to find out if there was any police misconduct.

Angel wanted to know why the district attorney cleared a deputy sheriff who killed another woman outside a motel after the woman moved her car toward the deputy. Angel was accused of jumping into the driver’s seat and fleeing.
