Judge Says Perdue Records Order Complies With Laws

A North Carolina judge says the public records policy adopted by Gov. Beverly Perdue complies with transparency laws.

However, Wake County Superior Court Judge Howard Manning did not rule Monday on complaints filed by media organizations that the
administration of former Gov. Mike Easley violated the state's records laws.

The lawsuit was filed after a former administration spokeswoman
described a policy of deleting e-mails sent to and from the
governor's office.

Perdue ordered last month that most e-mails sent or received by executive-branch employees should be preserved to comply with
public records laws. Easley issued a similar order on his final day
in office in January.
