Rambus instituted patent infringement litigation against Infineon in 2000
The present case comes after an opinion, referred to as the March 17th opinion, in which the court found that Rambus destroyed a significant amount of electronic information which was subject to discovery
This case concerns possible sanctions against Rambus for spoliation
Spoliation: destruction of records or documents that may be relevant to ongoing or anticipated litigation, government investigation or audit
Spoliation is not warranted because they destroyed the documents pursuant to a standard policy
At the time Rambus created their document retention policy, they felt their patented technology was being used illegally. Do you feel they should be punished for being aware of such possible infringement and thus creating document retention policies?
When IS the appropriate time to create document retention policies?
