GOP-led Legislature withdraws request for MT Supreme Court records

HELENA — Republicans at the Montana Legislature are withdrawing their request for internal communication documents from the state Supreme Court, attempting to end legal action over the issue, state Sen. Greg Hertz of Polson said Tuesday.

In a statement, Hertz said withdrawing subpoenas issued by the Legislature in April is the best way to advance a special committee’s investigation of potential conflicts of interest within the judiciary.
