ChampionsWorld LLC v. U.S. Soccer Fed?n, 276 F.R.D. 577 (N.D. Ill. Aug. 17, 2011)

(i.e. the company deleted nothing) and because of plaintiff?s failure to inform its accountants of the need to preserve, but declined to impose drastic sanctions and ordered that the jury be informed of plaintiff?s failure to preserve certain relevant information
