Court May Order Email Preservation

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics filed a lawsuit against the Executive Office of the President regarding emails the White House claims were lost. The lawsuit demands that the emails be restored from backup tapes, since (according to CREW) there has been no assurances that the backups won't be destroyed. The Justice Dept. lawyer said there was no need for a court order since "The Office of Administration is not recycling backup tapes," but now the magistrate is considering issuing court order to preserve the backup tapes.
Facciola adjourned court for 20 minutes, asking the two sides to try to work out wording on an agreement of what has been preserved. After the attorneys said they were at an impasse, Facciola suggested the requirements for a court order had been met.
