City Delivers Backups Under Seal in FOIA Shred Case


The City of Springfield has delivered on an agreement in the ongoing file-shredding case.

 

In a notice of filing dated Tuesday, the city says they have delivered two DVDs to the courts under seal.

 

The city agreed to produce and preserve whatever digital documents they may have related to a Freedom of Information Act Request from Pure News reporter Calvin Christian, documents that were reportedly destroyed.

 

Christian is suing the city over the destruction of the documents.

 

It's unclear if the DVDs contain any information related to the FOIA case because they're under seal.

 

Part of the agreement in Christian's case was to preserve the documents for possible investigation of violating state records laws.

 

A special prosecutor has been assigned to the case after State's Attorney John Milhiser recused himself for having perceived conflicts of interest because of his work with Springfield Police and because of current litigation with Christian.
