On November 5, 2015, Judge Peter H. Moulton, presiding judge over the New York City Asbestos Litigation (NYCAL), ruled in Warren v. AmChem Products, et al., 190281/2014, that J-M Manufacturing Company, Inc., was subject to spoliation sanctions for the destruction of corporate documents in two separate incidents. The judge imposed the sanction that the plaintiff is entitled to a jury instruction allowing the jury to infer that the missing documents would have supported the plaintiff’s claims.
