It’s a great day for evidence recovery

Dan Froomkin, Washington Post:

Countless e-mails to and from many key White House staffers have been deleted -- lost to history and placed out of reach of congressional subpoenas -- due to a brazen violation of internal White House policy that was allowed to continue for more than six years, the White House acknowledged yesterday.

I wouldn’t bet on that. Oliver North thought he had deleted all those emails. He discovered otherwise.

Congressional investigations are going to be very good to the evidence recovery industry. Presto Vivace does not currently have any evidence recovery clients, we wish we did. There are going to be a lot of terrific stories to be told.

Of course the key to attracting and retaining clients in this line of work is keeping your mouth shut. But without talking about your clients there is much that can be said about the science of recovery. This is a moment for journalists who report on litigation support, evidence recovery, and records management to come into their own.
