Trial date set in Joe Miller's privacy lawsuit

Associated PressOctober 7, 2011 

FAIRBANKS -- A trial date has been set in the privacy suit brought by former U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller.

Miller is suing the Fairbanks North Star Borough alleging that officials violated his privacy by releasing personnel documents before a lawsuit filed by media outlets, including the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.

The borough said it has found no wrongdoing by its employees.

The News-Miner says the trial date is Oct. 8, 2012, but the issue could be resolved sooner.

Miller defeated Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the August Republican primary in 2010, but lost to Murkowski in November when she ran a write-in campaign.
