On Friday, May 27, a judge rejected Gov. Scott Walker’s efforts to hide from the public his role in deleting “the search for truth” and the Wisconsin Idea from the UW’s mission statement.
Last May, CMD filed a lawsuit against Walker for unlawfully withholding public records about his office’s alteration of the mission. We were joined by the Progressive Magazine and it took more than a year to get the truth.
The documents released as part of the lawsuit show that far from being an inadvertent “drafting error,” Walker’s office was “the driving force” behind extensive edits.
The Summary Judgment and court ordered documents are below.
