In January, a federal judge ruled that former vice president Dick Cheney has broad discretion in determining which records created during his eight-year tenure must be retained. US District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled that, absent any evidence that Cheney's office failed to safeguard records, it is up to the former vice president to determine how he deals with the material. Cheney has taken the legal position that his office is not part of the executive branch of government, triggering a lawsuit by several groups concerned that Cheney would not turn over a complete record of his time in office.
