San Antonio city attorney, who asked whether lists of births and deaths kept by the city 's local registrar must be disclosed upon request The attorney general said the law restricts access only to actual birth and death certificates — which could be used in establishing false iden titles — but not to summary lists of births and deaths The legislative history of a 1987 amendment to the Open Records Act “suggests that the legislature wished to prevent persons from assuming false identities with information from and-or copies of birth and death records and to prevent persons from abusing sensitive information con tained in birth and death records. ’ Mattox said Birth and death certificates “may contain sensitive notations,” Mattox said “For example, a birth record may indicate that a child is ii legitimate A death record may in dicate that the caus** of death was suicide This information may be subject to abuse ’ “The summary lists that you have submitted for review are not however, subject to these abuses.” Mattox told Garza Man dies from injuries received in pit bull attack GALVESTON (AP An 83 year old man injured Nov 20 when he was attacked by two pit bull terriers died at a hospital from his wounds, of fieialssaid Johannes Wilkins, who had been in intensive care since the attack and had part of his left arm amputated died Wednesday at the University of Texas Medical Branch John Sealy Hospital, a spokesman said The two dogs that attacked W ilkins have been destroyed, along with two puppies, according to Galveston City Attorney Steve Williams The dogs owners charged with possession of vicious animals and allowing a dog to run loose have disappeared Williams said Add!
