Abcon Assocs., Inc. v. Haas & Najarian, No. CV 12-928(LDW)(AKT), 2014 WL 4981440 (E.D.N.Y. Oct. 6, 2014)

Key Insight: Where there was no evidence that plaintiff ever instituted litigation hold, and documents were either discarded during plaintiff?s office move or lost due to server failure and/or corruption, court found that a fair reading of the record overall indicated that plaintiff?s failure to preserve was at most negligent and not in bad faith, and that no sanctions were warranted given that the alleged relevance of the missing documents appeared purely speculative and conclusory

Nature of Case: Breach of legal services agreement

Electronic Data Involved: Documents concerning plaintiff’s liabilities and financial condition
