to the south bay. good morning, kris. >> reporter: well, good morning to you, laura. the spotlight is definitely on the city of san jose and some dealings from back in 2009 when city leaders used personal devices to send e-mails and techs related to the redevelopment of san pedro square. somebody wanted to see the documents and filed a public records request. then those requests were denied because a city attorney said they were e not accessible under the public records law. ted smith filed that lawsuit. that suit named former mayor chuck reed and city council, including the current mayor who was a councilman at the time, and head of redevelopment agency which no longer exists in the city of san jose. what the california supreme court decide today could close a loophole to keep it out of citizens's view. many consider it part of the public record, even if they're on personal devices. but it is like asking government
officials to hand over their personal passwords is like asking them to hand over their house keys. it would be expensive and couu b cumbersome. the california supreme court will take up the matter today. in case you're wondering, if our city leaders use their personal devices for work-related e-mails and texts today, those are subject to public records requests because in 2010, the city enacted sunshine reform law. agency leaders today are meeting to look at the route scheduling changes necessary once construction finally begins. as it stands, caltrain pushed back the deadline to begin the project the end of june because most of the funding is due to the high-speed rail project, including money for electrification is now in limbo. the trump administration
