BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - An outside consultant has determined that deleted emails from then-Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem and then-Dep. AG Troy Seibel cannot be recovered, according to a news release Tuesday from the North Dakota Attorney General’s Office.

The AG’s office said that Planet Technologies, Inc., completed an outside evaluation of the accounts of the two men, and determined that North Dakota’s Information Technology department was correct in determining they no longer exist and cannot be resurrected.

In September it was revealed that NDIT had hired the consulting firm out of Maryland to look into the matter further.
