McLeod to ask judge to reconsider ruling

Posted: Tuesday, January 26, 2010

JUNEAU - An attorney for activist Andree McLeod said he'll ask an Alaska judge to reconsider a ruling last week that state law doesn't forbid the use of private e-mail accounts to conduct state business. If the judge refuses, attorney Don Mitchell says McLeod could appeal to the Alaska Supreme Court.

The case stems from a 2008 records request by McLeod, which showed then-Gov. Sarah Palin and members of her staff had been using private e-mail accounts.

McLeod argued that use of private accounts obstructs the people's right to inspect public records. She maintained that Palin and the governor's office had a responsibility to save all e-mails related to state business.
