After a protracted legal battle, the email correspondence between Gov. Jon Corzine and union leader Carla Katz, his ex-girlfriend, could soon be in the public domain.
Mercer County Suprerior Court Judge Paul Innes, who has been reviewing the emails since August, ordered that the Corzine administration release the messages.
In May, 2007, the Republican State Committee filed suit to force the Corzine Administration to release the emails, which they suspected contained discussions about a contract negotiation between the state and Katz’s union, Communications Workers of America Local 1034.
The Attorney General's Office, which represents Corzine, is said to be appealing the decision. Spokesman David Wald could not immediately be reached for comment.
