Judge orders state to preserve Palin's e-mails

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - October 10, 2008 - Anchorage Superior Court Judge Craig Stowers ruled Friday in the lawsuit brought by Anchorage resident Andree McLeod against Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee.

Palin has occasionally used private e-mail accounts to conduct state business, and her Yahoo accounts were hacked last month.

The judge ordered the attorney general to contact Yahoo and other private carriers to preserve any e-mails sent and received on those accounts. An assistant attorney general told the court that the governor is no longer using private e-mail to conduct state business.
