CHAPEL HILL (AP) -- Attorneys for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and former football coach Butch Davis have filed motions seeking to dismiss a public-records lawsuit filed by media outlets covering the NCAA investigation of the football program.

Media outlets have sought numerous records from the school, including the personal cellphone records of Davis and unredacted correspondence between the school and the NCAA during the probe of improper benefits and academic misconduct.

The school's motion states the university has provided all information it can without violating federal privacy laws and therefore "this case is at an end.''

Media outlets have argued Davis used his personal phone to conduct job duties instead of his university phone, but his attorney argued the records don't constitute public records.

A hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
