Michigan Supreme Court won't take case on teacher email

Posted: Updated:

The Michigan Supreme Court says it won't decide whether the public is entitled to see email about union matters kept on a school district's computer system.

On a 5-2 vote, the justices won't consider an appeals court decision that said email written by leaders of the Howell teachers union is not a public record under state law.

Chief Justice Robert Young Jr. wanted to hear it. He calls it an important case involving interpretation of Michigan's public records law. The order released Wednesday is the second time the court has rejected an appeal.

In 2010, the appeals court ruled against public disclosure but urged lawmakers to reopen the 1977 law and consider the impact of technology.
