Gillette: Workers may have deleted e-mail
Gillette Co. said it is "possible" that senior executives deleted e-mail that may have included discussions of the company's proposed $57 billion acquisition by Procter & Gamble Co. that are being sought by the Massachusetts regulators.
The company disclosed in a filing in Massachusetts Superior Court Monday that Gillette employees whose e-mail may be subject to a subpoena from Secretary of State William F. Galvin "simply did not retain e-mail and, instead, had a regular practice of deleting it."
