Dodging a Bullet: Walmart Escapes Sanctions

This Corporate Counsel article highlights a recent litigation in which Walmart avoided sanctions through the revised Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 37(e) for failure to preserve electronically stored information (ESI). The article notes an all-too-common blind spot for many organizations in a litigation hold:  the ESI on an exiting employee’s computer. Organizations should adjust their procedures to check whether an exiting employee’s data are subject to an ongoing legal hold.
