Second lawsuit filed against Gov. Tom Wolf on behalf of Erik Arneson
A second lawsuit has been filed against Governor Tom Wolf, demanding he reinstate Erik Arneson as Executive Director of the Office of Open Records.
Pennsylvanians For Union Reform, filed the suit in Commonwealth Court on Friday. It’s seeking an injunction to prevent the office from ruling until Arneson is back at the head of the agency.
Arenson was appointed the job by former Governor Tom Corbett less than two weeks before Wolf’s inauguration. This lawsuit was the second filed in connection with Arneson’s firing.
On January 26th, Senate Republicans and Arneson also filed suit against Wolf, saying he does not have the authority to remove him from the position. A hearing in that case is scheduled for Wednesday.
