City Ordered to Mirror Back Up Servers in Ongoing File Destruction Case

The city of Springfield has ten days to prepare a forensic mirror image of their computer backups in an effort to find police internal affairs files that were destroyed after a Freedom of Information Act request was made.


That’s according to attorney Esther Seitz one of the lawyers for Calvin Christian, the Pure News reporter that requested the files.


Seitz says that the city agreed to an order that will not only make a backup of the city’s servers in hopes of finding the destroyed files; they will also preserve and provide any internal communications about the destruction of the documents and Christian’s FOIA for a possible criminal investigation.


The motion was part of an initial suit filed against the city seeking $5,000 for each file destroyed.
