HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Four top lawyers in the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office are disputing their boss’ statement about which emails stored on the office’s servers should be considered private.

The attorney general’s office distributed the four-paragraph memo signed by Bruce Beemer, James Donahue, Robert Mulle and Lawrence Cherba on Friday.

They were responding to Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s statement a day earlier that any email sent to an email account in the attorney general’s office is not considered private communication.

In their memo, they say Kane’s statement was wrong and that all communication with clients, co-counsel or opposing lawyers is private. Also private, they say, is communication involving victims, witnesses or criminal justice agencies.

The back-and-forth comes amid Kane’s release of emails involving state judges, prosecutors and reporters and reports that she’s feuding with top staff.
