Case Date: 12/21/2005
Citation: Channel Components, Inc. v. Am. II Elecs., Inc., 915 So. 2d 1278 (Fla. 2d DCA 2005)
Court Type: Florida State Court
Court: Fla. 2d DCA
Judge: Judge: Chris W. Altenbernd
Rule(s): Fla. R. Civ. P. 1.380

Defendants appealed the trial court’s imposition of sanctions for continuous violation of discovery orders upon Plaintiff’s motion for contempt and sanctions.


The Court affirmed the trial court’s sanctions, finding they were not an abuse of discretion. Defendants were presented with numerous opportunities to show cause why they should not be sanctioned, but failed to provide the requisite discovery despite an eventual showing that they had responsive documents the entire time. The Court held that the trial court had followed all procedural requirements and was fully justified in issuing such a large amount of sanctions, despite scant precedent for such a large amount.
