ILLINOIS -- The Illinois High School Association is under fire from one watchdog group. The Better Government Association is suing the IHSA to release documents as part of the Freedom of Information Act.

The group says the IHSA may be a private organization, but it oversees a public business. The IHSA published a letter from Attorney General Lisa Madigan exempting the organization from Freedom of Information requests.
