In the last 30 years, there have been approximately 45 cases decided by the Illinois courts regarding the issue of spoliation of evidence. Remedies for spoliation can run the gamut from a spoliation jury instruction to discovery sanctions precluding the admissibility of evidence, or even, in some instances, dismissal of the action. With such a wide range of remedies, litigants may experience difficulty in accurately predicting what, if any, outcomes could result when an Illinois court is faced with the issue of spoliation of evidence. This one-hour program seeks to bring some clarity to the topic and provides a chronological overview of the Illinois case law dealing with spoliation of evidence.
