Kelly Dyer Fry, vice president of OPUBCO Communications Group and editor of The Oklahoman, said she is disappointed in the decision to withhold documents.
“Current state law does not support her decision; we will now have to determine the next steps,” Fry said.
Brady Henderson, legal director for American Civil Liberties of Oklahoma, said his organization may file a lawsuit if it's determined Fallin's office did not comply with the law. He said that decision will be made as early as next week.
“We're disappointed that anything still includes executive privilege,” Henderson said. “I think we're going to try and have a little more time to look at those things that have been turned over so we can try to get a sense of where they draw the line.”
Eight other organizations, including TV stations, newspapers and an online blog, also received copies of the documents on Friday.
