TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A judge is asking to review 255 pages of emails that a newspaper has requested from a community college that the Tucson, Ariz., mass shooting suspect attended.

Pima County Superior Court Judge Stephen Villarreal said Friday he wants to see the documents before deciding whether The Arizona Republic should get them.

Republic attorney David Bodney argues the documents must be released under Arizona Public Records Law. But attorney John Richardson, who represents Pima Community College, says the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act bars the school from releasing the emails.

The college has released thousands of other pages of documents, but Richardson argues only suspect Jared Lee Loughner can give permission to release the documents that have been withheld.

Loughner was suspended from the college last year for disturbing behavior, then withdrew from the school in October.
