Extract from Kelly Twigger’s article “CaseoftheWeek Episode 70: Falsification of Evidence in a Trademark Infringement Case”
We’re heading into summer with our 70th episode of the Case of the Week series. In episode 70, Kelly Twigger discusses how falsification of evidence in a trademark infringement case led the court to dismiss the matter on a motion for sanctions. The case is For Life Prods., LLC v. Virox Techs. Inc., 2022 WL 1670097 (W.D. Va. 2022) from May 25, 2022 and was presided over by Senior United States District Judge James P. Jones.

As you know, on the Case of the Week series, each week, we choose a recently published decision from our eDiscovery Assistant case law database that highlights key issues for you to be focused on in the ediscovery process. And we try to talk about the practical implications of that decision for you, your clients, as well as your practice going forward.
