Also in the News: Judge orders Cheney to keep records

In response to a lawsuit brought by open-government advocates, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly has issued a preliminary injunction ordering Vice President Cheney and the National Archives to preserve all of Cheney's official records, The Washington Post reports.

"It's a pretty strong opinion," said Anne Weismann, chief counsel for  Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. "They will be prevented from destroying anything. It basically means they have to preserve everything in the broadest possible interpretation of what the law requires -- not their narrow interpretation" of the Presidential Records Act of 1978.
