(Harrisburg) -- Governor Corbett's office says it will comply with an appellate court ruling that says it cannot withhold calendar and e-mail records that were the focus of a Right-to-Know request.
A seven-judge panel of the Commonwealth Court has sided with The Associated Press in a battle over access to those records, saying that the governor's office failed to justify the redaction of 17 emails and 28 calendar entries.
Nils Frederiksen, spokesman for the governor's general counsel, says the withheld records will be turned over to the AP in a matter of days.
Frederiksen said the ruling clarifies how the Right-to-Know Law applies to calendar entries. He noted that the ruling allow some entries to be withheld, but only under certain, specific circumstances.
