New York - A judge has determined New York City police were grossly negligent by destroying internal emails and other records now being sought in a high-profile lawsuit.

But U.S. District Judge Robert W. Sweet also found that while New York Police Department officials didn’t take document retention seriously, they didn’t lie.

Among the emails missing are those belonging to former police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. His spokeswoman didn’t immediately return a message.

A Law Department spokesman noted Wednesday that Sweet found that neither Kelly nor another top police official lied under oath about their emails.

The Tuesday ruling comes as part of a 2010 class-action lawsuit alleging police used a quota system for summonses. Lawyers suing the city had sought senior police officials’ emails, monthly activity reports among other records.
