Court Type: Federal District
Court: Middle District of Florida (M.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal District Judge: Richard A. Lazzara
Issues:

Defendant filed motion for sanctions, claiming that Plaintiff altered computer data and concealed data until after discovery ended.

Resolution:

The Court denied Defendant’s motion for sanctions. The Court found the data was added later and not changed or altered. Further, the Court noted that the tomato pick tickets were found later and provided to Defendant, and there was thus no spoliation.

Relevant Documents:

Motion for Sanctions Based on Alteration and Spoliation of Evidence (Doc. 50)

Plaintiff’s Response to Motion for Sanctions (Doc. 80)

Order on Defendant’s Motion for Sanctions (Doc. 105)
