WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The D.C. Court of Appeals has passed a decision that the Metropolitan Police Department Chief Cathy L. Lanier does not have to disclose the identities of employees who sent emails to a special email account, officials said in a press release.
This account was created so employees could talk to her directly with any questions, comments and concerns. The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), filed a suit demanding the identities of the employees who sent emails be revealed. Copies of the email were made available but the identities were hidden, officials said.
Judge Anna Blackburne-Rigsby at the Court of Appeals upheld the District's position, officials said.
