Courts are taking destruction of evidence seriously. Recently, in Victor Stanley Inc. v. Creative Pipe Inc., No. MJG-06-2662, 2010 WL 3530097 (D. Md. Sept. 9, 2010), Judge Paul Grimm found the defendant in contempt of court for spoliation and sentenced him to up to two years in jail, unless he pays plaintiff’s costs.
