WPR: Assembly Speaker Robin Vos produces 10,000+ emails in response to open records request, though judge says he can stop searching private email and voicemail for deleted messages.
"I just don't see that at this point, any more time, expense or money is really relevant to the issues at hand to see if there's possibly some way to recover deleted messages on a private phone," (Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie) Bailey-Rihn said. "Speaker Vos is the speaker of the house, but he also is a private citizen. And I don't see how you can separate his private messages from his public messages, if in fact you could even recover deleted messages, which I think is doubtful."
