"We've gotten some documents from HP," the spokesman said. "The lawyers are going over it as we speak."

The House committee asked for a wide range of documents related to HP's investigation of unauthorized release of information to the press. On Friday, the committee also asked four people to testify at a Sep. 28 hearing, including HP Chariman Patricia Dunn and General Counsel Ann Baskins. Also asked to appear were outside lawyer Larry Sonsini and outside investigator Ronald DeLia.

The committee spokesman said it has yet to be informed who might testify.
