Judge Rules Against White House in E-Mail Case
An AP newswire article, via The New York Times, reports that:
A federal judge ruled against the Bush administration in a court battle over the White House’s problem-plagued e-mail system.
The judge, Henry H. Kennedy Jr. of the United States District Court, said two private groups, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics and the National Security Archive, may pursue their case as they press the administration to recover millions of possibly missing electronic messages.
The administration had argued that the courts did not have the power to order the White House to retrieve any missing messages. A document obtained by The Associated Press in August said the White House was missing as many as 225 days of e-mail dating to 2003 and invited companies to bid on a project to recover them.
