Tyler Abrahams secures dismissal of Complaint and monetary sanctions due to Plaintiffs’ discovery violations
On behalf of his attorney clients, Tyler Abrahams obtained a judgment in his client’s favor after proving the plaintiffs had suppressed and spoliated evidence throughout the litigation. Mr. Abrahams oversaw a two year long forensic discovery investigation into the plaintiffs’ computers and email accounts. His detailed analysis and arguments established how the plaintiff’s misdeeds were severe violations of Rules 11 and Rule 37. The Court agreed that the only appropriate sanction was a complete dismissal of the Complaint. The court also awarded the defendants their attorneys fees and costs incurred in having to retain a forensic expert to prove the plaintiff’s discovery misconduct.
Following this outcome, Mr. Abrahams has given several presentations in the professional community on the tactical importance of forensic discovery and the mechanics of obtaining discovery in the digital age.
