A Tift County judge is scheduled to consider arguments Tuesday on whether to open the sealed divorce records of 8th Congressional District candidate Austin Scott.

Amy Morton of Macon originally asked the court to unseal the records, which were closed three years after the divorce in 2001. Now the Georgia First Amendment Foundation joined in the request. The foundation argues that the records should be public for the Republican state representative from Tifton because they were originally open.
