An effort by the Nashville Tennessean to review workplace harassment case files involving the governor’s appointees was turned back by a county judge, who agreed with the state that the records are protected both by attorney-client and work produce privileges. The governor previously made available case files involving low level employees but balked when asked for records that might implicate his aides. The paper said two top aides reportedly named in harassment investigations had recently resigned. (9/30/05)
