McCann v. Kennedy Univ. Hosp., Inc., Civil No. 12-1535 (JBS/JS), 2014 WL 282693 (D.N.J. Jan. 24, 2014)

Key Insight: Applying Third Circuit’s four-factor test for evaluating spoliation claims, court denied plaintiff’s motion for sanctions, finding that plaintiff failed to establish that defendant acted in bad faith by allowing the tapes to be automatically taped over as a matter of routine, since there was no evidence that defendant’s employees knew or anticipated that plaintiff’s claims would require the retention and production of emergency room lobby videotape footage from the night plaintiff was treated

Nature of Case: Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act claims

Electronic Data Involved: Security videotapes of emergency room lobby
