Former union leader and gubernatorial ex-girlfriend Carla Katz has filed a legal brief saying that the emails she exchanged with Gov. Corzine should be kept private because they touched on union negotiations, reports the Associated Press.
Katz attorney Paul Fishman argued that the some of the emails made “in connection with” contract negotiations don’t have to be disclosed, while the rest of the correspondence is private.
Republican State Chairman Tom Wilson is suing to make the emails public, believing that they should be public information. Corzine cited executive privilege. Wilson won the initial phase of the lawsuit, but Corzine appealed.
