Local news media report that Fulton County Superior Court Judge Henry Newkirk on Thursday granted a motion filed by media organizations.

WXIA-TV reports the judge will likely sign an unsealing order in the coming days. The state is appealing.

Media lawyers argued the September sealing order violated the state and federal constitutions and court rules because it was entered without public notice and without an opportunity for a hearing. The state argued the law exempts records sealed by court order.

The 22-year-old daughter of singer Whitney Houston was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta townhome Jan. 31, 2015, and died in hospice care July 26.
