Breaking! More E-mail Release Delay

E-mails exchanged between Kootenai County Prosecutor Bill Douglas and former employee Marina Kalani likely won’t be released this month. The clerk’s office for the Idaho Supreme Court said today that the justices will not take any action in the public records case until after June 25. The Idaho Supreme Court ruled May 4 that e-mails Douglas exchanged with Kalani were public records. The Spokesman-Review sued in 2005 to obtain e-mails Kalani, former coordinator of the county’s juvenile drug court, exchanged with Douglas following the program’s demise under financial scrutiny. Kalani filed a motion for rehearing on the day the Supreme Court’s decision was to become final. She withdrew the motion on Monday. According to the clerk’s office, the case is being delayed for 14 days in case anyone objects to Kalani withdrawing the motion.
