Public Employee Phone Records May Not Private


The Arizona Court of Appeals ruling that public employee's private cell phone records can be considered public records if the employee used the phone for a public purpose.   

The unanimous panel decision contradicts an Attorney General Mark Brnovich's opinion earlier this year, according to the Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting.  

In the past, elected officials and government workers have denied public records requests for text messages on the grounds that they were made on private devices.
