Citizens for Responsibility v. Trump, 18-5150

Held that political watchdog organizations could not proceed with their lawsuit alleging that White House personnel were violating the Presidential Records Act by communicating over messaging apps that automatically delete messages once read, thus not preserving official presidential records as required. The organizations failed to establish a right to relief in this action seeking a writ of mandamus. Affirmed a dismissal.
