Paper Trail: An Angry Professor Uses a State Law to Get Colleagues' E-Mail Messages and Other Records
Fogg, Piper
Chronicle of Higher Education, v51 n45 pA20-A22 Jul 2005
Angry over the department's vote not to hire his wife, University of Georgia history of science professor Alexei Kojevnikov obtained access to professors' and administrators' e-mails and documents related to the hiring process and spousal hires. This article discusses the controversy from different perspectives, the state of Georgia's law that grants public access to information created by public employees-including public university faculty-, and the rights of confidentiality and information access in academia.
