The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) chapter in New Hampshire is pushing the attorney general to make a full, public release of the 171 names on the “Laurie List.”

The list is formally known as the Exculpatory Evidence Schedule, which the attorney general’s office is required to update and maintain.
