State Supreme Court to Hear "Executive Privilege" Public Records Case

The Washington State Supreme Court accepted review of Freedom Foundation v. Gregoire.  The case will determine if the Governor has a constitutional-based "executive privilege" allowing her office to withhold public records that would otherwise be disclosable under the Public Records Act.  This is a big one.

The case was brought by the Freedom Foundation.
