Thank you for using JustAnswer!
Can you please describe these "confidential" e-mails? Who was the sender and who were they sent to? Why do you believe that they were 'confidential'?
I sent an-email concerning my views of the Councilman, to the Mayor. I mentioned that I viewed the Councilman as being "Trailerpark Trash", and also as a Judas.
You can go to the public meetings and express your displeasure at the hearing of the public that your e-mail was forwarded.
However, you have to legal basis to sue for the e-mail to be forwarded. While you may have thought that the e-mail was "confidential" -- it was an e-mail that was sent to a public official and, thus, was a public record and accessible to anyone via the state's Freedom of Information Act laws.
While the Mayor may have exercised poor taste and a lack of professionalism, the Mayor did not break any laws.
Good luck and best wishes for better days ahead. I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
Are you saying I do have no legal basis for a law suit?
