« The Morning Wrap | Main | Utah AG Finds New Home at Troutman Sanders in D.C. »

December 18, 2012



Yes, the AG and plaintiffs' counsel can agree on what the agenda for a phone conference will be. But how is plaintiffs' counsel supposed to know that he needs to revisit "old stuff" because deleted material had been recovered?

The wordplay around "delete" sounds deceptive to me. All deletions in all computers are recoverable until something intervenes to block retrieval, such as over-writing the same disk sector with new data, or scrubbing metadata that tracks where in the virtual "Recycling bin" folder the original material lies. Pressley's testimony may have been non-false, but it's dishonest to re-define "delete" so as to give a false impression that her office's Delete function works less of a deletion than anyone else's.
