Christian Vows To Fight City Legal Tactic, Protect His Sources


The plaintiff suing Springfield City Hall over police internal affairs records goes back to court next week to fight the city’s attempt to get him to turn over information. 

 

The city is requesting Calvin Christian’s phone records and information on who gave him tips or helped him shape his request for IA files… some of which were shredded by the city after Christian requested them.  Christian says his status as a reporter for the Pure News protects his sources and prevents the city from seeking that info. 

 

But he says even if he weren’t a reporter, the law does not require any citizen to disclose phone records or explain their motivation for seeking public documents. 

 

That hearing was originally set for Tuesday… but has been rescheduled for October 24th.
