E-discovery case law

DATEPOSTUREOUTCOMEENTRIES
07/16/2020Defendants’ appeal of district court’s imposition of judgment as spoliation sanction.District court decision affirmed.QueTel Corporation v. Abbas, No. 18-2334 (4th Cir. July 16, 2020) In an unpublished per curiam opinion, appellate judges Gregory, Keenan and Thacker affirmed a district court’s judgment that awarded judgment to plaintiff-appellee as a sanction for defendants’ spoliation of evidence and imposed a permanent injunction against defendants. Four months after plaintiffs sent defendants a cease-and-desist letter notifying them of potential litigation, one of the defendants, a former employee of plaintiff, destroyed a computer used to develop software at issue in the case. Defendants did not disclose the destruction until confronted by plaintiff. Defendants also deleted a source code control system and a considerable amount of files related to the dispute from the replacement computer in the middle of the parties’ discovery disputes over the existence of such a system. Accepting a recommendation from the magistrate judge, the district court found that the cease-and-desist letter put defendants on notice and invoked a duty to preserve, that the defendants intentionally destroyed evidence in bad faith with the intent to deprive plaintiff of the evidence’s use in the lawsuit, that plaintiff had been irreparably harmed, that a jury instruction was an insufficient remedy, and that as a result judgment should be imposed as a sanction against defendants. Examining the situation, the appellate court found no abuse of discretion in the district court’s decision.
