White House E-Mail Case Clears Another Hurdle

The White House email archiving fiasco is under further scrutiny. eWeek is reporting that a District Court Judge has ruled the White House must participate in some type of limited discovery activities.

Rejecting the White House Office of Administration's contention that it is not subject to Freedom of Information Act requests, District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ordered the OA (Office of Administration) to participate in limited discovery.
The lost emails issue will be recorded in the history books along with other communication data losses, such as the Watergate-Nixon tape erasures in the 1970's and Fawn Hall thinking she deleted IBM PROFS messages as Iran-Contra blew open in the 1980's.
