TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine’s e-mails to his ex-girlfriend will remain private.

The New Jersey Supreme Court said Wednesday that it will not to hear a case trying to force release of the e-mails.

Republican Party leader Tom Wilson had wanted Corzine and his staff to make public e-mails they exchanged with Corzine’s former girlfriend, Carla Katz.

Katz is the leader of a public employee union. She and Corzine dated before he became governor. Both were involved in negotiating the most recent contract between public worker unions and the state, though neither was at the bargaining table.

The Supreme Court’s decision not to take the case effectively ends the litigation that threatened to spill into the governor’s re-election campaign.
