White House Ordered to Keep Email

U.S. District Judge Henry Kennedy has ordered the White House to preserve copies of all its emails, granting a request from Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which has brought a lawsuit against the administration regarding missing email.
CREW brought this lawsuit against the Executive Office of the President and the National Archives and Records Administration challenging their failure to restore and preserve millions of emails deleted from White House servers and to institute an effective electronic record-keeping system. When the White House refused to give adequate assurances that it would preserve back-up copies of the deleted emails -- the only source of these important historical records -- CREW sought a temporary restraining order.
