Friday Funnies: "Bad Actor" Edition - Not the Bees!

Created on August 16, 2019


We all know “bad actors” exist in Hollywood—take most of the last decade-and-a-half of Nicolas Cage’s career, for instance—but bad acting in the world of e-discovery takes on a slightly different tone. For just one example, take a look at this case from last June involving a lying defendant who later admitted to destroying “responsive evidence located on his personal computer and in his personal cloud storage account.” That instance of bad acting—truly worthy of a Razzie Award in the world of e-discovery—led to sanctions against the defendant because of his intent to deprive the plaintiff of information during litigation.

At least Nic Cage’s bad acting only leads to great memes.
