A federal judge has ruled that the Secret Service can’t claim not to own the records and must therefore produce them.

The judge’s ruling on other issues ropes in yet another federal agency. The judge held that he could not stop the Secret Service from destroying their records, but he ruled that the Archivist of the United States will have to sign off on any document destruction.
