As previously reported, Ashley, her sister Wynonna, and Naomi’s husband Larry Strickland sued local law enforcement to prevent the release of records pertaining to its investigation into the death. The materials include photos, videos, and audio recordings.

The family argued the records are "private, incredibly sensitive and do nothing more than re-open the fresh wounds of Naomi Judd's death." They argued that if the file was released it would cause them anguish and distress.

"I think Naomi Judd should be remembered for the way she lived and not in the matter in which she died," said each statement from family.

Law enforcement and local media argued for the release of the records saying the public has a right to the information.
