Group behind Tar Creek audit lawsuit sues again
One day after securing the release of a state audit into the Tar Creek Superfund site, a national watchdog group filed another lawsuit against the Oklahoma attorney general’s office.
Campaign for Accountability filed an open records lawsuit in Oklahoma County District Court seeking copies of communications between former Attorney General Scott Pruitt, along with Pruitt’s staff, and U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe and Inhofe’s staff regarding the toxic northeast Oklahoma site.
“Now that the audit is out, we know that Scott Pruitt failed to prosecute allegations of serious misconduct,” said Daniel Stevens, the group’s executive director. “The new lawsuit seeks to find out why.”
