NJ Supreme Crt. won't hear email case

March 18, 2009 7:43:32 AM PDT
The New Jersey Supreme Court will not to hear a case trying to force the release of Gov. Jon S. Corzine's e-mails. Republican Party leader Tom Wilson wanted Corzine and his staff to make public e-mails they exchanged with Corzine's former girlfriend, public employee union leader Carla Katz.

Corzine and Katz dated before he became governor. Both were involved in negotiating the most recent contract between public worker unions and the state, though neither was at the bargaining table.

The Supreme Court's decision not to take the case effectively ends the litigation that threatened to spill into the governor's re-election campaign.
