Judge rules Mayor Emanuel must release emails, texts

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A judge has ruled the Mayor Rahm Emanuel must release private emails and texts about city business.

The Chicago Tribune filed a lawsuit in September saying Emanuel violated state law by refusing to release the private messages. The mayor argued the city complies with records requests, and that he conducts city business on his government devices and accounts.

The mayor's office says it will fight the ruling.
