Re: Legal Directive to Preserve Documents
Pursuant to the litigation filed on 7/16 by the survivors and families of the Lake Quannapowitt boating incident (the ACCIDENT), all records and communications pertaining to the July 4th Bass Fishing Tournament (the EVENT) are to be retained until further notice.
While we believe this suit to be baseless and without merit, the City Attorney's office is committed to a fair and impartial legal process. We extend our condolences to the victims of this terrible tragedy.
