Court grants Oklahoma AG more time to comply

The Associated Press - March 1, 2017 11:19 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The chief justice of the Oklahoma Supreme Court has granted an emergency motion that gives Oklahoma’s new attorney general more time to produce thousands of documents detailing the relationship that new Environmental Protection Agency leader Scott Pruitt had with energy companies.
In an order late Tuesday, Chief Justice Douglas Combs granted Attorney General Mike Hunter’s request for an emergency stay.
Hunter had argued that complying with a lower court’s request to produce thousands of documents by Friday amounted to a “Herculean task.”
Lisa Graves of the Center for Media and Democracy, which sued Pruitt’s office to release the documents, described Hunter’s request as a delay tactic and said she’s confident they will ultimately win the case and receive thousands more emails.
