Judicial Watch Statement on Federal Court Ruling on Missing IRS Emails

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to today's decision from Judge Emmet G. Sullivan regarding the recently "lost" emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials, which were the subject of longstanding Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. IRS (No. 1:13-cv-1559)):

In a victory for public accountability, Judge Emmett Sullivan ordered that the IRS must submit to the court a written declaration under oath in the next 30 days about what happened to Lois Lerner's "lost" emails and any other computer records reportedly lost by the IRS. Judge Sullivan appointed Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola to manage and assist in discussions between Judicial Watch and the IRS about how to obtain any missing records from sources. Magistrate Facciola is an expert in e-discovery.

Judge Sullivan also authorized Judicial Watch to submit a request for limited discovery into the missing IRS records after September 10.

These extraordinary court ruling are key steps in unraveling the Obama IRS's ongoing cover up of its abuses against critics of this administration.
