FAIRBANKS, Alaska — A judge has ruled that an Alaska borough must release personnel records from Senate Republican candidate Joe Miller's time as a government attorney.

Several news organizations sued for the information. The Anchorage Daily News reported Saturday that retired Superior Court Judge Winston Burbank says the public's right to know outweighs Miller's right to privacy.

Miller recently acknowledged he was disciplined for violating the ethics policy while working for the Fairbanks North Star Borough, but said it was unrelated to his departure from the borough.

Burbank ordered that the documents be released by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, which allows time for an appeal. Media attorney Chris Zimmerman says he expects Miller's attorneys to appeal the decision to the Alaska Supreme Court.
