A hearing is scheduled on Tuesday in Grant County Circuit Court for a court order to keep Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer from deleting emails that may be relevant to his connection with the militants who took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The Oregonian wants official government business related emails sent and received on a personal email account, which is listed on the Sheriff’s Office website, to be retained according to public records laws. Sheriff Palmer’s attorneys revealed that those emails are routinely deleted, and claim that doing so is within the state’s policies.
