Newark Officials Release Facebook Grant Emails

 Newark officials have released internal emails related to a $100 million grant to the city’s schools made by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

The Star-Ledger reports that it obtained dozens of emails from the city late Monday. That came just days after a state judge ordered Mayor Cory Booker to release the emails following a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of a group representing Newark schoolchildren.

The suit sought greater transparency about who was overseeing the spending of the money. The Associated Press and other news outlets also made such requests under the state’s Open Public Records Act.

The city had sought to withhold numerous emails sent between mid-September 2010 and late June 2011, claiming they were exempt from open-records laws.
