No Independent Cause of Action for Spoliation Recognized in Pennsylvania

In the case of Marinkovic v. Battaglia, No. 1:14-CV-49 (W.D. Pa. Sept. 23, 2019 Baxter, J.), the court granted a Motion to Dismiss after confirming that Pennsylvania law does not recognize any independent cause of action for spoliation.  (See Op. at p. 23-29).

I send thanks to Attorney James M. Beck of the Philadelphia office of the Reed Smith law firm for bringing this case to my attention.
