ACLU Sues Governor Mary Fallin

Posted: Updated:

    The Oklahoma chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against Gov. Mary Fallin after her office refused to turn over documents requested under the state's Open Records Act.

    The ACLU filed the lawsuit in Oklahoma County District Court on behalf of  The Lost Ogle, a satirical local news and entertainment website.

    The Lost Ogle joined with several news organizations in a request for documents from the governor's office related to her decisions to reject a state health insurance exchange and Medicaid expansion under the federal health care law.

    The governor's office released thousands of documents, but withheld about 100 pages of materials that her General Counsel Steve Mullins claims are "privileged."

    Media law experts say there is no such exemption.
