Ades v. Omni Hotels Mgmt. Corp., No. 2:13-cv-02468-CAS(MANx), 2014 WL 4627271 (C.D. Cal. Sep. 8, 2014)

Key Insight: Considering plaintiffs? motion for class certification, court discussed Omni?s efforts to preserve call records and recordings and the apparently accidental loss of related call detail records and attendant search functionality; plaintiffs argued that any difficulties in identifying class members was due to Omni?s destruction of data that could have been used to search call recordings, and that it would unfair to allow such difficulties to prejudice class certification; court ultimately certified class and ruled that, to the extent Omni argued that ?identifying class members? may be difficult, those concerns were more properly addressed after class certification

Nature of Case: Putative class action alleging claims under the California Invasion of Privacy Act

Electronic Data Involved: Audio recordings of telephone calls and related data
