Case Summary: Quintus Corp.; Court grants default judgment in b/r trial where defendant was found to have destroyed evidence

Posted by rjbiii on September 6, 2007

In a bankruptcy trial where defendant had destroyed electronic files, evidence that “went to the heart of the Trustee’s suit,” for the purpose of clearing more drive space; where defendant had breached a contract and therefore knew that the files would be relevant to potential litigation, the court ruled that judgment should be entered in favor of the Trustee for all claims listed in the Debtors’ b/r schedules and on the claims register. Trustee’s motion seeking attorneys’ fees as well was denied because the court granted a more severe sanction. In re Quintus Corp. v. Avaya, Inc., 353 B.R. 77 (Bkrtcy. D. Del. 2006).
