Mazzei v. Money Store, —Fed. Appx.—, 2016 WL 3902256 (2d Cir. July 15, 2016)

Key Insight: District court did not abuse discretion in declining to impose an adverse inference for failure to preserve ESI in an accessible format and instead awarding costs and attorneys fees where the at issue system “contained only ‘tangential information'” and where Plaintiff failed to seek discovery from other sources; Circuit court’s analysis noted recently amended Rule 37(e)’s required finding of intent to impose an adverse inference and that the District Court “specifically found that defendants did not act with such intent”

Nature of Case: Class action: breach of contract

Electronic Data Involved: ESI in third party custody but under control of defendants
