State claims Hill not entitled to documents

Dec 11, 2013 - The Associated Press

CHEYENNE -- Attorneys for the state contend Wyoming schools Superintendent Cindy Hill is not entitled to certain records and correspondence from the governor's office and the state Department of Education.

Hill has filed a lawsuit in state district court in Cheyenne seeking correspondence from several employees in the governor's office and the agency as well as other information.

The Attorney General's office filed the state's response to the lawsuit Monday.

The state lawyers argue Hill cannot seek the records under her official capacity as superintendent of public instruction. It says the court should dismiss any claims to records in her official capacity.

They also contend that the information she is seeking as a private citizen is exempt from the state public records act because it is privileged or protected attorney-client information.
