Guidance on how not to respond to discovery requests and orders

On September 25, the Eastern District of Missouri struck pleadings against a litigant who (a) failed to produce a laptop, claiming it could not be found, until the very last minute; (b) refused to turn over privileged documents or a privilege log for documents withheld from that laptop; and (c) had already destroyed other discoverable information, such as cell phone records. 

District Judge Rodney Sippel's not-too-friendly order was entered in St. Louis Produce Market v. Hughes, Case No. , 4:09CV1912, 2012 WL 4378194 (E.D. Mo. Sep. 25, 2012).
