CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court says former
Gov. Jim Gibbons must describe dozens of emails he refused to make public and explain why they are not subject to the state's public
The court said in a ruling Thursday that Carson City District
Judge Todd Russell erred in determining that Gibbons did not have
to create a log containing a factual description of each withheld
The court also ordered Russell to review the messages and
determine whether they should now be disclosed.
The decision stems from a 2008 public records request made by
the Reno Gazette-Journal.
Some of the emails were to Kathy Karrasch. Gibbon's former wife
accused him of having an affair with Karrasch.
Gibbons was defeated by Brian Sandoval in the 2010 GOP primary.
