Mo. Gov. Wants E-mail Lawsuit Dismissed

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) _ An attorney representing Gov. Matt
Blunt against a lawsuit over access to his office's e-mail records
urges a state trial judge to dismiss the case.
The lawsuit is being pursued by a bipartisan team of lawyers
selected by Cole County Judge Richard Callahan. The suit was
initially filed by special investigators selected by Democratic
Attorney General Jay Nixon.
Former Supreme Court Judge John Holstein, who represents the
Republican governor, said Wednesday that the lawsuit doesn't offer
evidence for many of its allegations.
Joe Maxwell, a former Democratic lieutenant governor, is
handling the suit. Maxwell argued that he and Republican attorney
Louis Leonatti had tried to ``depoliticize'' the lawsuit by using
vaguer terms. Maxwell said they would be more specific if
requested.
