Case Blurb: NTL Securities Litigation; Scope of duty to preserve and key players

Posted by rjbiii on August 28, 2007

The duty [to preserve evidence] also includes documents prepared for those individuals [“key players”], to the extent those documents can be readily identified (e.g., from the ‘to’ field in e-mails). The duty also extends to information that is relevant to the claims or defenses of any party, or which is ‘relevant to the subject matter involved in the action.’ Thus, the duty to preserve extends to those employees likely to have relevant information–the ‘key players’ in the case. In re NTL Securities Litigation, 2007 WL 241344 (S.D.N.Y., Jan. 30, 2007).
