White House wins e-mail ruling

June 17, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A federal judge ruled that a White House office does not have to make public its records about millions of possibly missing e-mails.

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly said the Office of Administration is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act. The ruling enables the White House to maintain the privacy of an internal paper trail about its problem-plagued e-mail system. The suit was filed against the administration by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a private group that has been trying for more than a year to find out the extent of the e-mail problems.
