A day in court

Today the 3rd District Court of Appeal in Sacramento will hear the Tracy Press' e-mail case against Councilwoman Suzanne Tucker. (For a previous rant that's worth 8 minutes of your time, check here.)

The thrust of the Press' argument is that e-mails concerning public business sent from someone acting in an official capacity are subject to Public Records Act requests — even if they were sent via personal computer — because they concern public business and were sent by someone acting as a public official.

Check back often, alert readers. I'll be back with an update sometime in the early evening.
