OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)— The Oklahoma Bar Association will investigate an ethics complaint against former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt.

The Center for Biological Diversity and University of Oklahoma law professor Kristen Van de Biezenbos filed a complaint last week. They are seeking an investigation into Pruitt's testimony during a U.S. Senate Committee confirmation hearing for his appointment as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency.

The complaint detailed Pruitt’s violation of Oklahoma's rules of professional conduct. Scott testified before the committee that he did not use a personal email address to conduct business while Attorney General of Oklahoma.

It has since come to light that Pruitt did use his personal email to conduct state business.
