Parker v. TaxPrep1, Inc.

Case Date: 07/27/2015
Citation: 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 193833
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Middle District of Florida (M.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal Magistrate Judge: Phillip Lammens

Defendant filed a motion for spoliation sanctions against Plaintiff after she had deleted emails and other communications months after producing the relevant documents per the court’s scheduling order.


The court denied the motion. The deletion of emails and other communication did not prejudice Defendant, since the plaintiff had produced the relevant documents months before per the court’s order. Further, Defendant did not delete the communication in bad faith. At best, the plaintiff was negligent in her deletion when she thought that the information was no longer pertinent.

Relevant Documents:

Defendant’s Motion for Sanctions Against Sharon Parker for Spoliation of Critical Evidence (Doc. 71)

Plaintiff Sharon Parker’s Opposition to Defendant’s Motion for Sanctions and Incorporated Memorandum of Law (Doc. 77)
