Linnebur v. United Telephone Assoc., Inc., No. 10-1379-RDR, 2012 WL 2370110 (D. Kan. June 21, 2012)

Key Insight: Where Plaintiff was able to establish that defendant destroyed ESI while under a duty to preserve but was unable to establish that she was actually prejudiced by the loss, the court denied Plaintiff?s motion for sanctions without prejudice and, noting that it was ?troubled? by Defendant?s preservation failures and counsel?s apparent failure to oversee his client?s discovery efforts, the court sua sponte reopened discovery solely as to the issue of spoliation

Nature of Case: Unlawful termination under Age Discrimination in Employment Act

Electronic Data Involved: Email, ESI
