The open line and today's video. Plus: Another FOI victory

Posted By on Thu, Sep 24, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Here's today's open line and news video. Also:

* AN FOI VICTORY: A Freedom of Information Act complaint against the Little Rock School District won favor in Circuit Judge Alice Gray's court. Lawrence Walker, attorney for a school employee with a grievance against Sandra Register, principal of Terry Elementary, filed the complaint against the Department of Education, now running the district,; Superintendent Baker Kurrus, and Register. The state was dismissed as a defendant.

Walker was seeking e-mails sent by Register relevant to the grievance. She said she deleted all her emails and couldn't produce them. Seth Bowman, attorney for Walker, argued that the records should have been retained and that they could still be retrieved from the district's computer system. He put on testimony from an IT employee in the district that it could be done. So ordered, said the judge.
