Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a petition for writ of certiorari (“cert petition”) with the U.S. Supreme Court asking it to uphold a court ruling requiring Hillary Clinton to testify under oath about her private email system.
Last March a federal court ordered a deposition of Hillary Clinton on her emails and Benghazi attack records in response to a FOIA lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch. Hillary Clinton’s lawyers immediately filed an emergency appeal to stop her court-ordered email testimony.
Clinton’s team filed an emergency writ of mandamus to avoid testifying and the DC Court of Appeals granted her relief in August. Judicial Watch refuses to back down and is now taking the fight to the US Supreme Court.
