A Sedona resident is going to get his chance to prove state utility regulators illegally withheld information about a study of the health effects of “smart” meters.

In a ruling Tuesday, the state Court of Appeals said Warren Woodward is entitled to have a judge determine whether the Arizona Corporation Commission acted improperly in refusing to disclose some details. Attorneys for the regulators claimed a variety of reasons for denying access to documents, including that some would disclose the “state of mind” of those writing it.

More to the point, Judge Diane Johnsen, writing for the unanimous three-judge panel, said Woodward may be legally entitled to share what he already knows of the information he was initially denied, information a trial judge told him he had to keep to himself.

    I’ve measure EMF levels on our Smart Meter. It’s very low and disappears are you move more than a foot away. I’m not sure what else they can measure that maybe harmful. Any local AM megawatt station near you is much worse and stronger.
