The Oklahoma Supreme Court stopped the release of state employee birth dates by issuing a stay Monday, December 13. The action halts a September district court ruling that the Office of Personnel Management and the Office of State Finance should prepare to release the information by December 20.
The Supreme Court has taken jurisdiction on this issue and will hear the case at a later date. The action this week prevents agencies from releasing state employee birth dates before the Court has had an opportunity to examine the issue.
“We are encouraged by the Supreme Court taking jurisdiction and issuing this stay,” said OPEA Executive Director Sterling Zearley. “We are looking forward to a final resolution to this issue and are confident the court will find in our favor.”
