LAS VEGAS (AP) - A conservative think tank says it will take its fight for the release of teachers' work emails to the Nevada Supreme Court.
Clark County District Judge Douglas Smith on Monday dismissed Nevada Policy Research Institute's lawsuit against the Clark County School District.
The Las Vegas Sun reports the judge ruled the email database requested is not a public record.
Smith's order said the school district's interests for nondisclosure outweigh the interest of public access..
NPRI sued the school district after it denied several public records requests for the teacher emails.
The organization has been waging an email campaign against the Clark County Education Association, sending email blasts to thousands of teachers encouraging them to drop their union memberships.
