Newark Told to Produce Facebook-Pledge Papers

New Jersey’s largest city must produce a list of documents related to its $100 million public schools pledge from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

A judge issued the ruling as part of a lawsuit brought by a group representing Newark schoolchildren that is seeking more transparency about the donation.

The Associated Press and other news outlets also have made such requests.

Newark initially said no documents existed, and if they did, the correspondence was privileged. The American Civil Liberties Union argued the privilege can only be claimed by the governor and not by a sitting mayor.

The judge told the city to compile a log about the roughly 50 pages of e-mails that it now says exist.

The $100 million pledge was announced a year ago on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show.
