Sunbury code office computer fight


SUNBURY — A Sunbury laptop computer was at the heart of a Northumberland County court fight Tuesday. Attorney’s for Sunbury councilman Joe Bartello sough a court injunction barring the city from searching a code office computer. All this stems from a Right to Know request filed by Moran Industries.


In the end, the court fight fizzled when the mayor of Sunbury cancelled a scheduled meeting to probe the computer. This is not the end of the legal suit. According to Bartello and his lawyers, a suit will address what they call the mayor’s abuse of his rights. Bartello seeks to protect files on the computer that could compromise citizen’s information.
