Krakauer given access to redacted court documents in University of Montana rape case

HELENA – A Lewis & Clark County District Court Judge says author Jon Krakauer should be given access to university documents concerning a high-profile rape case on the University of Montana campus five years ago.

However, the judge ruled that Krakauer will only receive a redacted version of those documents, protecting the identity of the student involved in the investigation.

Krakauer has been fighting for several years to access the full records of the 2013 investigation which formed the core of his best-selling book, “Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town.”
