The Central Intelligence Agency will not be held in civil contempt for its 2005 destruction of videotapes showing two terror suspects being questioned by agents using waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques. Southern District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein said yesterday that the CIA has largely complied with requests by the American Civil Liberties Union under the Freedom of Information Act for documents on the destruction of 92 tapes of the interrogation of two top al-Qaida figures.

Department of Defense, 04-cv-04151.
