Defense Lawyers Balk as SEC Makes Play for Hard Drives
Eugene Goldman, commenting on the SEC’s push to request computer hard drives from individuals and companies it investigates, said he received his first request for a client's hard drive in the past six months. "I objected to it," he said. Goldman said he was alarmed because the hard drive would potentially give the SEC a lot of information outside the scope laid out by the formal order of investigation. The SEC is considering his request to narrow the scope.
