Acting on Thursday morning the California State Supreme Court (the legislative arm of the Democrat party in California) ruled that emails and text messages sent by government officials on their private accounts ARE public records if they concern public business. The ruling was unanimous.

The action under scrutiny was a lawsuit concerning messages on private devices by the Mayor of San Jose and members of the city council. Various public officials have attempted to circumvent the public records act by using personal devices and accounts to discuss official business that they do not wish subject to FOIA requests.
