The Nebraska Attorney General's Office has backed a student newspaper in its quest for records regarding the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's new health center.

The Daily Nebraskan sought the attorney general's help last month when the university refused to share contents of a private hospital company's bid to build and operate the new center.

The office of Attorney General Jon Bruning called on UNL to release the bid documents but said the university could black out portions containing proprietary information about the company, Bryan Health. The office's opinion doesn't carry the force of law, however.

UNL spokeswoman Kelly Bartling said that the university hadn't decided yet whether it would release the information.
