Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you very much for all of the input. I understand that any lawyer can issue a subpoena for the documents, however my job has let me know that such action could draw too much attention to myself, more than likely result in one of the forms of reprimand and would not be in my best interest if I want to keep my job and still remain in the same area I live in. All of that being said, is there a way to do it without the e-mails? Though I do not have the e-mails themselves, I do have letters of warning from my supervisor referencing the e-mails being sent to my bosses boss' boss and citing the dates the e-mails were sent.
One last question (I hope). Would I still be able to get the e-mails subpoenaed on her end, if she sent them from her work e-mail? She is a contractor whose company's contract is with prominant federal government agency.
