Former UNC Coach Butch Davis Fights Release Of Cell Phone Records

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- An attorney for former North Carolina football coach Butch Davis is seeking to block a subpoena from media outlets pursuing Davis' personal cell phone records.

In a motion to quash the subpoena, attorney Jonathan D. Sasser writes Davis' records from his personal cell phone don't constitute public records. The objection was dated Tuesday

In addition, Davis says in an affidavit that his family has been harassed after their cell numbers leaked out following previous releases of public records.

The subpoena was filed last week as part of media coverage of the NCAA investigation of the school's football program. Reporters had sought Davis' cell phone records as part of a legal fight over public records connected to the case. It gave Davis until Friday to produce the records.
