TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) – The battle over Gov. Rick Scott’s use of a personal email rages on – this time with a California judge chiming in.
A judge has ordered Google to turn over the computer IP addresses for all correspondence to and from Scott’s private Google email account since 2011.
Scott had fought the request.
A Tallahassee lawyer wants the info to see if the governor conducted state business on the account.
Scott has previously said he used a Google email account to communicate with his family and not for state business.
Most of the emails appear to be from 2011 and 2012, though there are some also from 2013. It is not a violation of law to have a private email account, but it would be a violation if someone asked for emails and the governor’s office failed to turn them over.
