Newly issued Palin docs offer no new information about CSU Stanislaus visit

SACRAMENTO — A state university has released 899 pages of documents about an upcoming appearance by Sarah Palin, but still no details about her contract or planning for the June 25 event.

California State University, Stanislaus provided the documents Monday to the open government group Californians Aware. The group sued the university last month seeking information about Palin's contract with the university's foundation arm.

The former Alaska governor, who commands speaking fees as high as $100,000, was booked as the featured speaker at the university's 50th anniversary gala.

Kelly Aviles, an attorney for Californians Aware, says most of the papers released Monday are about news coverage of the controversy surrounding Palin's visit.

Aviles says under California's Public Records Act, some of the paperwork should have been made public weeks ago.
