What a subpoena letter looks like

City Email Docs080409-1
The non-disclosure suggestion is worded so non-threateningly.

Cliff added a great comment to the last post that's worth repeating:

Here's a question I need someone to answer for me. Why don't the feds just get a subpoena to take the entire server and do their own data extraction? Is it normal for the feds to let someone they are building a case on hire private firms to retrieve information? To me this says they are still looking for a smoking gun to make a case with. In the meantime we keep spending city money for all of this.

Maybe just tacking on additional counts?

That would seem kind of like spinning the wheel when you've already solved the puzzle.

If I may, guys, the Feds gather *all* evidence.

If someone comes along and gathers evidence, or documents, or data, that's what they do: they GET it. All of it.

That way, when they're done, they know they will have looked at *everything* possible and the defense will not be able to say 'What about this' or 'You didn't look at that', etc. There are also issues of possible spoliation of evidence. And if it is duplicative, so what, they can clear that out.

The feds have already been through City Hall and its servers, it has likely made copies of everyinthing, and it probably doesn't mind a little house cleaning and they probably don't mind the show and Nagin's extra measures at retaliation (oh say like firing LTC) or its opening new avenues of discovery (oh say like suing LTC and allowing for even *more* discovery such as depositions, inspections, etc.

Couhig's representing LTC, did you hear that?

One other thing, if you look at that LTC report you will see that an entire COPY of the whole thing was made on LeFrance & Pals' computer(s) so the feds likely have a copy of that already *too.*

Seeing as how the Nagin just keeps giving them more and more i just don't see how the feds stop the show instead of just lett(en)ing him (pun there).
