COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Georgia Attorney General's office said they will not get involved in the Columbus Parks and Recreation case. In a letter to both the city and defense attorneys for Herman Porter and Tony Adams, the AG's office said there is not enough evidence to say whether or not the alleged contract with Nike is an open record. 

In a letter to the state, the city said that East Marietta Basketball had failed to properly comply with an open records request. 

Shevon Thomas, attorney for Adams, said he believes the city sent the letter "to make a determination whether or not they are subjected to the open records act, if a contract exists.  If it was in fact, the state Attorney General's office would come in."

The entire letter is attached.
