*Understanding Spoliation: Key Issues and Legal Implications

Spoliation refers to the destruction or significant alteration of evidence, or a party’s failure to preserve evidence relevant to reasonably foreseeable litigation. The sanctions for spoliation depend on the actions of the spoliating party and the prejudice suffered by the non-spoliating party.

This essential webinar delves into the full spectrum of spoliation issues, providing critical insights for legal professionals. Key topics discussed include:

-Impact of Laches and Detrimental Reliance on Patent Litigation Timeline:** Understanding how these doctrines affect the progression of litigation.
Determining “Reasonably Foreseeable” Litigation:** Criteria and considerations for anticipating litigation.

Triggers for Foreseeing Patent Litigation:** Identifying events and actions that signal impending litigation.

Influence of Longstanding Relationships on “Reasonably Foreseeable” Litigation:** Evaluating how established relationships among parties affect litigation expectations.

Range of Sanctions for Spoliation:** Exploring the variety of sanctions that can be imposed for spoliation.

Establishing Sanctioning for Spoliation:** Legal standards and procedures for imposing sanctions.

Negligence and Rebuttable Presumption of Prejudice:** Analyzing if negligence alone can establish presumed prejudice.

Third Circuit’s Three-Pronged Balancing Test:** Applying this test to determine sanctionable conduct.
