District Court Orders White House To Preserve E-Mail:
News update here, although it's hard to know what to make of it without reading the opinion. An earlier and related story is here.
Sounds like it's too late already.

Yeah. To paraphrase Stalin: how many divisions does the district court have?

The TRO and the magistrate judge's order that recommended the TRO be issued are available at CREW's website.

Who wants to bet they'll regret this after finding that 95% of all the emails consist of nothing but lolcats?

Very incriminating lolcats.

I'm a bit taken aback that there has to be a court order to specify that the White House should adhere to the clear letter of the law. Preserving email records is already federally mandated, isn't it?

It's like issuing a court order to tell them not to engage in tortu---oh wait, never mind.

Well, you know what I think? I think President Bush should tell Congress he is NOT turning over any White house e-mails until the 11th Circuit, 6th Circuit, and 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals and United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida turn over all THEIR e-mails and blogging posts of the Clerk "AnnTM" and her co-horts admitting they interfered with, mocked, and obstructed justice in ADA cases down there showing a lack of impartiality. Say, wasn;t it a Democratic judge who blocked the President's efforts to help Terri Schiavo?

The President should read THIS entire thread.
