Judge Orders Fischer Not Destroy Biogenesis Documents

MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Thursday morning, there was an emergency hearing requesting Porter Fischer appear in court in the case against Alex Rodriguez and other Major League Baseball players.

Fischer is the former Biogenesis employee and investor that reportedly took boxes of patient files from Anthony Bosch's Coral Gables clinic.

The files contained the names of players that are believed to have been given performance enhancing drugs by Anthony Bosch.

Thursday, Judge Ronald Dresnick and attorneys for MLB questioned Fischer about the various times he has been served with a subpoena for the documents.

Here is a segment of the court proceedings:

Judge Dresnick: "The subpoena required you to produce documents. My question to you is whatever the documents that the subpoena referred to, did you gather those documents and give them to your lawyer?"

Fischer: "No sir."

Judge Dresnick: "I'm going to give you a specific order, which is do not destroy anything which you currently possess."

Fischer: "Ok."

Judge Dresnick: "Which is listed in this list of documents or to give it to anyone else."

Fischer is the one who released the documents to Miami New Times in January creating a media fire storm with the worst of it focused on Alex Rodriguez.
