Third District, Salt Lake Department
The Honorable Timothy R. Hanson

Robert Dale Straley, Draper, Appellant Pro Se
Jan Graham and James H. Beadles, Salt Lake City, for Appellee


Before Judges Greenwood, Davis, and Orme.


A person may petition a government agency to amend public, private, or protected records unless the records relate "to title to real or personal property, medical records, judicial case files, or any other records that the government entity determines must be maintained in their original form to protect the public interest and to preserve the integrity of the record system." Utah Code Ann. § 63-2-603(8) (1997). Straley seeks to amend the alienist report of Kenneth J. Hobbs, a licensed psychologist. However, his requested amendments are prohibited by section 63-2-603(8) either as medical records or as a record that must be maintained in its original form.

Accordingly, we affirm the trial court's dismissal of Straley's "Petition for Judicial Review of Board of Pardon's Denial to Amend Records."
