Twitty v. Salius, No. 11-448, 2012 WL 147913 (2d Cir. Jan. 19, 2012)

Key Insight: Appellate court found that District Court did not abuse its discretion in declining to impose an adverse inference instruction for the destruction of an original surveillance tape where the destruction was negligent and where, because of the existence of copies of the tape (albeit with slight differences in tracking, color, and audio quality), the destruction did not materially prejudice plaintiff?s case

Nature of Case: Civil rights action

Electronic Data Involved: VHS surveillance tape
