Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin accused of violating Open Records Act

Wendy Gregory, who directed the governor's Tulsa office from January 2011 to December 2012, filed the lawsuit in Oklahoma County District Court on Tuesday.

The civil suit claims that the garnishment was cleared and that she received positive performance reviews at work.

Gregory contends that her personnel file is public record according to the state's Open Records Act.

Tulsa attorney Anthony Mareshie, who represents Gregory, said the governor's office has “stonewalled” him.

“I've been sitting around for the past six or eight months with a client who has basically been slandered and defamed,” he said.

“Everyone who reads about this case will think that she was fired for cause. Where are the records? There should be something in the file that reflects why she was terminated.”

The garnishment concerned a child custody dispute from her husband's previous marriage because Wendy and Chris Gregory filed a joint tax return with the IRS, he said.

Fallin's office did not return calls seeking comment.
