Is It Potentially Relevant?

Remember, no matter what Daisies you WANT to chuck, you can’t take ANY action unless you make sure the information is not even potentially relevant and/or needed for threatened, imminent or active lawsuits, investigations or audits. Take for example the Hackergate investigation. That’s the case of News Corp. journalists hacking into the voice mails of people in the news to learn insights into their lives so they could report on the information. Lots of folks are under scrutiny (and they have already shut down the offending newspaper in England) because of the scandal. However, as reported in the Wall Street journal on December 12, 2011 in an article entitled ‘Hacking Investigation Questions Who Erased Voice Mails’, the investigation is focusing on the deletion of the certain voice mail messages as such action might point to the guilty party.
