SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- An animal rights group denied access to the names of researchers at the University of Utah has filed a lawsuit in 3rd District Court seeking the information.

The State Records Committee denied a public records appeal by Utah Primate Freedom last month. The group is seeking the names, titles and salaries of university employees at the schools Animal Resource Center.

The committee's ruling upheld the school's decision to give the group the titles and salaries of employees but not their names.

Utah Primate Freedom has held protests in front of the homes of the school's prominent animal researchers. The university says they are trying to keep the group from further threatening faculty and staff.
