The IRS Scandal, Day 419

IRS Logo 2Wall Street Journal:  Judge Sets Hearing on Group's Push to Investigate Lost IRS Emails:

A federal judge scheduled a hearing for next week on a grass-roots conservative group's request to investigate missing emails at the Internal Revenue Service, as part of the group's lawsuit against the agency.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton ordered the hearing on Tuesday, after conservative group True the Vote filed a motion seeking to speed up discovery and "preserve and prevent further destruction" of documents and electronic data. Among other things, the group wants a forensic expert to figure out how the emails were lost and examine whether any of the missing data can be recovered.

The hearing is set for July 11 in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.
