A judge makes a ruling over the use of private emails for state business.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – A judge has ruled that private email accounts could be used by the Alaska governor’s office for state business. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Superior Court Judge Jack W. Smith stated in his decision that the state’s laws do not prohibit private email use in such matters.
The case was brought to the court following the filing of a lawsuit by Andree McLeod of Anchorage, who viewed the action sometimes used by former Governor Sarah Palin as one which prevented citizens from being able to view public records.
McLeod is quoted by the AP as stating of the ruling, “I’m stunned that something as simple as no private e-mails should be used for state business has become such a complicated issue.”
