Move-Zillow spoliation hearing live blog: Day 1

The first day in the spoliation hearing between Move, Inc. and Zillow Group. Move and NAR allege Zillow execs Errol Samuelson and Curt Beardsley have destroyed a “massive” amount of evidence that would have shown the execs misappropriated Move and NAR’s trade secrets. Zillow, Samuelson and Beardsley maintain they had no duty to preserve evidence before a lawsuit was filed against them and they did not intentionally destroy evidence in bad faith, but rather deleted data to protect their own personal information. Move and NAR are asking the court to issue a ruling deciding the case in their favor without a trial, saying a fair trial may no longer be possible. // Read the second day of our live blog coverage of the hearing.
