The Defendants in Green v. McClendon, 2009 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 71860 (S.D.N.Y. Aug. 13, 2009) attempted to purchase a $4.2 million painting. As the Defendants’ marriage ended in divorce, the Defendants (who never took physical ownership) did not complete their payments.

The Plaintiff sought sanctions against both the Defendant and her lawyer for failure to preserve electronically stored information.
