Dalton McGuinty’s former chief of staff and deputy chief of staff have had their court appearances put over until next month, so that defence teams can go over disclosure, and work with the Crown on disclosure issues.
David Livingston and Laura Miller were charged by the OPP last December following an investigation into the deletion of emails on the Liberals’ decision to cancel two gas-fired electrical generating stations prior to the 2011 election.
It’s alleged that the pair hired Miller’s partner, Peter Faist to wipe information from about 20 hard drives in the the Premier’s office.
Faist, who is a computer expert, was under contract to the Ontario Liberal Party at the time.
Both Miller and Livingston are charged with breach of trust, mischief in relation to data and misuse of a computer system to commit the offence of mischief.
They have denied all charges.
Neither were present in the courtroom at Old City Hall on Wednesday morning, and were represented by their lawyers.
They are due back in court on February 24th.
