INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -
An Indianapolis lawyer is asking the Indiana Supreme Court to order the
release of emails sent to Vice President Mike Pence when he was governor.
appeal asks for access to emails sent to Pence in 2014 in which a staffer
for Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott outlined a legal strategy for
challenging then-President Barack Obama’s executive order on immigration.
The Indiana appeals
court last month found the documents are privileged attorney-client
communications. Groth’s appeal, filed Monday, argues that Pence did not
solicit legal advice from the Texas attorney and that they therefore have no
privileged relationship to protect.
Press left a message Tuesday seeking comment from Pence’s attorney.
The supreme court
has yet to decide whether it will consider the appeal.
