ALBANY, N.Y. – A New York judge has approved public disclosure of two remaining volumes from an investigation into the 1971 Attica prison riot and aftermath, but he is excluding grand jury excerpts.

Justice Patrick NeMoyer says it's now up to New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (SHNEYE'-dur-muhn), who has the entire 1975 Meyer Commission report, to publicly release those volumes after removing any evidence from grand jury investigations into possible crimes.

He was acquitted of attempted murder but convicted of a weapons charge in a case that made him a symbol of what some considered self-defense and others called vigilantism.
