Flanders v. Dzugan, No. 12-1481, 2015 WL 5022734 (W.D. Pa. Aug. 24, 2015)

Key Insight: Court declined to impose sanctions, despite Defendant?s failure to issue a litigation hold, where Plaintiff could not show that evidence was actually lost or destroyed and where, although the court acknowledged that Defendant?s record keeping appeared ?slipshod,? Plaintiff could not show bad faith (?in no case in the Third Circuit cited by Plaintiff, or found by this Court, has a court granted a spoliation inference on nothing more than a failure to institute a litigation hold?)

Nature of Case: [A]lleged constitutional violations arising out of the building permit approval process
