Group wants Clark County (Nev.) district to provide e-mail addresses for 18,000 teachers

Libertarian group sues, saying information should be public; districts says e-mail addresses are considered private personnel records.

A libertarian think tank is suing the Clark County (Nev.) school district to gain access to e-mail addresses for the system's nearly 18,000 teachers. The Las Vegas Sun says the Nevada Policy Research Institute contends that teacher email addresses are public records. The district has refused to grant the institute's requests for a directory of teacher email addresses. It argues that the addresses are part of an employee's personnel records and not a matter of public record.
