Title Brief of amicus curiae, Michigan Press Association and Mackinac Center, re Zarko v Howell Education

The Michigan Supreme Court received this amicus brief from the Mackinac Center and the Michigan Press Association addressing the question:

Under the Freedom of Information Act, do “public records” include e-mails sent and received by public school teachers on an e-mail system provided by the school district?

The document provides the argument by which the court should be persuaded to decide that teacher emails are public records; the Court of Appeals found otherwise, and the Supreme Court decided 4-3 not to hear the case.
