WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– A federal judge has instructed the IRS to appear before the court July 11 to explain why the IRS shouldn't be required to allow outside experts evaluate whether the emails of former IRS employees are truly lost.

True the Vote, a Houston-based conservative non-profit which was targeted by the IRS both in 2010 and 2012, filed a motion in district court.  The organization requested the court to allow independent digital forensic experts to examine the hard drives of former IRS employee Lois Lerner and six of her colleagues to determine whether the lost emails are unrecoverable.

"Even if the ill-timed hard drive ‘crash’ was truly an accident, and even if the IRS genuinely believes that the emails are ‘unrecoverable,'  the circumstances of the spoliation at issue cry out for a second opinion," True the Vote's attorneys told Walton in the motion filed late Monday.

"It may well prove to be the case that a computer forensics expert could recover evidence that the IRS has been unable to retrieve.

"At the very least, such an expert could preserve whatever evidence has not already been wiped clean from the IRS's computers along with whatever is stored on the Individual Defendants’ home computers, cell phones, and other PDAs." — Source
