F & J Samame, Inc. v. Arco Iris Ice Cream, SA?13?CV?365?XR, 2015 WL 4068575 (W.D. Tex. Jul. 2, 2015)

Key Insight: Court granted in part plaintiff?s motion for attorneys? fees, where defendant had used software to wipe a PC and a laptop, deleting and overwriting more than 62,000 files, and violated a court order, and stalled the discovery process. Court denied in part plaintiff?s motion for sanctions, however, instead granting leave for new depositions, saying that while its order ?does not address the loss of evidence that may establish willful infringement,? the alleged infringing materials ?are available for the jury to assess whether infringement has incurred or not.?

Nature of Case: Trade dress and Trademark infringement
