The University's lead faculty
governing body discussed at
their weekly meeting yesterday
how to handle a Freedom of

Information Act records request
filed with the University on
March 17 seeking the release of
personal work e-mails of faculty
in labor studies departments.
The FOIA request was filed
with the University by the
Mackinac Center for Public Pol-
icy - a nonpartisan, non-profit
policy organization in Midland,
Mich. - to obtain e-mails that
contain information regarding
the public union dispute in Wis-

consin. Similar requests have
also been filed with Michigan
State University and Wayne
State University.
Specifically, the request
sought e-mails containing the
words "Wisconsin," "Scott
Walker" or "Maddow" - return-
ing to the Republican Wisconsin
governor and MSNBC talk show
host rachel Maddow. This fol-
lows the Wisconsin Republican
Party's FOIA request for the

e-mails of University of Wiscon-
sin Prof. William Cronon, after
he publicly criticized Walker.
Suellyn Scarnecchia, vice
president and general counsel
at the University, attended the
Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs meeting
yesterday to explain the FOIA
request and garner the opinion
of the members for how to fur-
ther deal with the matter.
