White House Wins on Missing E-Mails

Susan Hall

In the saga that never ends, a federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit trying to force the White House to produce missing e-mails, reports The Washington Post.


In a 39-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled that the White House's Office of Administration is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act, even though officials in that office complied with such requests until August 2007.


A federal court previously ordered the White House to preserve copies of all its e-mails. Apparently, though, the new ruling means it just doesn't have to hand them over.


The group that filed the lawsuit, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, has vowed to appeal, of course.
