Judge: UW-Madison's $15M donors can stay anonymous

Judge: UW-Madison's $15M donors can stay anonymous: "Based on that publicly available information, Internet sleuths may be able to guess the identity of the donors who promised $15 million to build a music performance facility at the university. But a judge has decided that their names can stay secret for now, a decision praised by university fundraisers.

'It's very important,' said Andrew 'Sandy' Wilcox, president of the UW Foundation, which raises money for the school. He said being forced to release the names of the donors 'would not only damage this proposal but a lot of others in the future. We would be seen as not being able to keep our word.'"
