Groups Seek Access To Faculty Emails

The Chronicle of Higher Education and other media are tracking attempts by Wisconsin Republicans and the Mackinac Center for Public Policy to obtain the emails of faculty at universities in Wisconsin and Michigan who oppose the elimination of collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin or have made comments about the collective bargaining situation in the state. Faculty members and universities are attempting to argue academic freedom as a defense in order to shield the emails from disclosure. Stories here from the Chronicle, here from the New York Times.
