I hate to admit that I goofed this morning re: the interpretation of the letter from Kootenai County civil deputy Darrin Murphey to SR attorney Joel Hazel. But 'tis true. Hazel tells us that Murphey simply was saying that the county is going to allow former chief deputy prosecutor Rick Baughman decide whether to release all of his e-mails now or wait until Judge Stegner releases them May 25 or shortly thereafter, when the Idaho Supreme Court order on the Kalani e-mails becomes official. Stegner deferred action on the Baughman case until the Supreme Court ruled on the Kalani-Douglas one. Dang, I hate when I'm wrong.
