News of the World Buries the eDiscovery Lede: Spoliation

SuperMario
For those who aren't familiar with the term, "burying the lede" refers to an article that fails to express the most important issue in the 1st sentence or paragraph.

Obviously, by now you've heard about the News of the World phone-hacking scandal.  If you're an eDiscovery professional, then you'll find the lede buried all the way in paragraph nineteen:

"On Saturday, the Guardian newspaper, which has led the reporting on the scandal, said Scotland Yard was investigating evidence that a News International executive may have deleted millions of internal e-mails to obstruct the phone-hacking probe. The company denies the allegation." [italics/bold added]

If the allegation turns out to be true, I only have one question.  When will they ever learn?
