The Ohio case was not a FOIA, it was based on a lawsuit filed by an
employee who alleged employees were using the e-mail system to send
racist/discriminatory e-mail, which is why the court had to first determine
if the e-mail was considered a public record under Ohio law before ruling
on whether the sheriff's department was required to produce the records.
