Judge Roy Willet closed the competency hearing in May, for the man charged in the murders of a Vinton family.
His attorneys argued the public had no right to scrutinize his personal medical files.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=@File;


After three hours of testimony from three psychologists, Willet found Bramblett competent, but sealed the record, saying it was necessary to protect the defendant's right to a fair trial.
The appeals court disagreed, saying since a competency hearing can postpone a trial indefinitely, citizens have a right to know what's going on.
The court also said excluding the media from the hearing was a violation of the first amendment.
The prosecution and defense both had no comment on the ruling.
The documents will remain sealed until Judge Willet issues an order to open it.
