Court Rules Against NYC Over Ex-Chancellor Emails

A court has upheld a judge's decision ordering Mayor Michael Bloomberg's administration to release emails between his office and former schools chancellor Cathie Black.

 
The emails were requested by an investigative journalist under the Freedom of Information Law. The city's Law Department contends the emails are exempt from the law.
 
Sergio Hernandez sued the administration, saying they refused a Nov. 19, 2011 request for emails leading up to Black's controversial hiring and short-lived tenure.
 
A judge ordered the city to release the emails to Hernandez. The City appealed and on Tuesday an Appellate Court upheld the judge's decision.
 
A City lawyer said the city is reviewing the decision and will ask the court permission to appeal.
