NASHVILLE (AP) – Lawmakers trying to quash subpoenas seeking information that might reveal details about why they voted for a measure that overturned Nashville's anti-discrimination ordinance have released 2,200 documents, but plaintiffs' attorneys aren't satisfied.

Counsel for Sen. Mae Beavers of Mt. Juliet and Reps. Jim Gotto of Hermitage and Glen Casada of Franklin told Davidson County Chancellor Carol McCoy on Monday that their Republican clients don't have any more documents to provide.

Plaintiffs' attorneys are looking for communication the lawmakers may have had with lobbyists. Attorney Abby Rubenfeld told reporters after the hearing that only about 10 documents are relevant to the case.

She said the rest are mostly constituent letters.

McCoy told both parties to try to reach some sort of agreement on the documents by the end of next month.
