The Associated Press announced it intends to sue the West Virginia Supreme Court for violating the state’s Freedom of Information Act.

AP claims the high court failed to comply with the law when it deemed e-mails, visitor logs and other records of Chief Justice Elliott Maynard were not subject to FOIA requests. The court did release information relating to other court employees.
