Miller v. Experian Info. Solutions, Inc., No. 3:13-cv-90, 2014 WL 5513477 (S.D. Ohio Oct. 31, 2014)

Key Insight: Noting that parties have no duty to create documents simply to comply with another party’s discovery request, court denied plaintiff’s motion seeking spoliation sanctions based on defendant’s alleged failure to preserve copies of plaintiff’s credit reports, as defendant provided third parties with only unformatted electronic data which the third party would then aggregate and format according to its needs — it did not create any hard copy documents in connection with the process; as such, defendant could not be sanctioned for failing to preserve documents it neither created nor possessed

Nature of Case: Fair Credit Reporting Act case

Electronic Data Involved: Copies of credit reports defendant provided to third parties during pendency of lawsuit
