DETROIT (AP) — The state is asking a judge to block disclosure of emails and documents that members of Gov. Rick Snyder's administration exchanged while deliberating over candidates for Detroit's emergency manager.
The Detroit News reports (http://bit.ly/1eDikWa ) Attorney General Bill Schuette filed an emergency motion on Snyder's behalf seeking intervention in a lawsuit brought by union activist Robert Davis against the state Treasury Department that seeks documents.
Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Maria Oxholm has scheduled a Tuesday hearing on the motion. Last week, Oxholm ordered the Treasury Department to provide her with copies of records under seal that hadn't been redacted.
Schuette wrote that Snyder wants to "protect the other candidates for the emergency manager position from being unnecessarily burdened and harassed."
Davis says he's trying to determine the identities of candidates.
