Sergio Hernandez, a reporter for ProPublica, is suing Michael Bloomberg. Hernandez says that when Bloomberg hired Cathie Black from Hearst, he attempted to gain access to the emails between Bloomberg and Black, because as everyone knows, it was a shocking choice.

Hernandez explains that New York laws designate any mayor’s office correspondence as public records. However, after some time, Hernandez was denied access to the emails by a city lawyer. Hernandez then appealed that decision, but was denied again.

Now he’s suing Bloomberg, attempting to get to the bottom of not only why he hired Black in the first place, but now, why he would be denied access to seemingly bland emails.

This is going to be interesting.
