Magistrate Sanctions Company For Failure To Preserve E-mails

On January 30, 2007, a federal magistrate judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York imposed sanctions that included adverse inferences and attorney fees for a company’s failure to preserve electronically stored information and e-mails despite an agreement with a nonparty subsidiary that allowed the company full access to the documents in question.
