Shelby Commission lawyers ask legislators for correspondence on schools' issue

NASHVILLE — Lawyers handling the County Commission's municipal school district lawsuit have asked the entire Tennessee legislature for "all communications or letters," including e-mail, regarding the consolidation of the city and county schools and the creation of new municipal school districts.

The request by lawyers from the Baker Donelson law firm includes communications from "any citizen, constituents, residents or anyone else," legislative administrators said Monday.

Unlike the commission legal team's search for other information in the case, the request directed to the General Assembly was not issued in the form of a subpoena, a legal demand that the requested material be delivered. However, legislative officials said they are complying with the request and sent a letter Friday to all 132 members of the General Assembly and their aides "asking them to review their records in their office and if they had anything they felt fell under the scope of the request to please provide it to" the Office of Legislative Administration, Director of Legislative Administration Connie Ridley said.
