OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Supreme Court has removed language that was critical of the state attorney general's office in an Open Records Act case involving communications between then-Attorney General Scott Pruitt and major energy companies as well as the Republican Attorney General's Association. The court ruled Monday that the trial judge's characterization of the office as an "abject failure" in complying with the law was "surplus and unnecessary." Pruitt now heads the EPA.
