The city of Norman must turn over records requested by two residents who filed a joint suit against the city alleging a violation of Oklahoma’s Open Records Act. District Judge Jeff Virgin granted a motion for a temporary injunction requested by Casey Holcomb and Darcie Woodson. The injunction requires the city to release email records between members of city staff, city council members and oil and gas industry groups and other oil stakeholders.
“At today’s hearing, the judge required both Woodson and Holcomb to post a bond that would cover the cost of the research and review,” Assistant City Attorney Rick Knighton said. “The city attorney’s office is working on the request for the documents and plans to provide them once the review has been completed.”
