Reinsdorf v. Sketchers U.S.A.,Inc., — F. Supp. 2d —,2013 WL 3878685 (C.D. Cal. July 19, 2013)

Key Insight: Where Plaintiff sought sanctions for alleged spoliation of documents from Defendant?s media share website but where the court found that many of the at-issue documents were not relevant and therefore were not subject to preservation and that the deletion of ?arguably relevant documents? was ?at most negligent,? the court found that Plaintiff was not prejudiced and denied his request for forensic examination of Defendant?s servers and an evidentiary hearing and also declined to re-open discovery; court?s analysis noted that the federal rules do not require perfection, but rather that a responding party conducts an objectively reasonable search for responsive materials

Nature of Case: Copyright infringement

Electronic Data Involved: ESI stored on Media share website
