JEFFERSON CITY — Special investigators looking into the e-mail practices of former Gov. Matt Blunt's office have missed a court deadline to report their findings.

A settlement approved earlier this month called for investigators to submit a report by 10 a.m. Monday to the law firm representing Blunt. That did not happen.

A bipartisan pair of court-appointed attorneys asked a Cole County judge for a one-week extension on the report. Blunt's attorneys have opposed that. At this point, it's unclear when — or whether — the report will be filed.

The investigators have been working on behalf of the attorney general's office to determine whether Blunt's office improperly deleted some e-mails in violation of public records laws.

Blunt's term as governor ended Jan. 12.
