Celestica Inc. Sec. Litig., No. 07 Civ. 312(GBD)(MHD), 2014 WL 1301881 (S.D.N.Y. Mar. 31, 2014)

Key Insight: Mandatory adverse inference instruction was not warranted by former Chairman’s admitted deletion of e-mails after his retirement despite written document preservation instruction from corporate counsel at the outset of litigation, as defendants did not have requisite culpable state of mind and there was insufficient evidence of relevance or prejudice; instead, permissive adverse inference instruction was appropriate

Nature of Case: Securities class action

Electronic Data Involved: E-mails of defendant Celestica’s former Chairman of the Board
