People v. Jobe, 2010 WL 4106708 (Cal. App. Ct. Oct. 20, 2010)

Key Insight: Trial court did not err by refusing to dismiss based on prosecutions failure to preserve potentially exculpatory video surveillance tape where the tape was never in the possession of the State but rather remained in the possession of the market and where the exculpatory value of the video was not apparent, and thus there was no evidence of bad faith

Nature of Case: Attempted robbery

Electronic Data Involved: Video surveillance footage
