Authoring Judge: Judge Thomas R. Frierson, II
Trial Court Judge: Judge Beth Boniface
In this negligence action that arose from a tractor-trailer accident, the trial court dismissed the plaintiffs claims following the court s determination that a critical piece of evidence had been destroyed by the plaintiffs, resulting in severe prejudice to the defendant. The court further determined that dismissal was the only equitable remedy for the plaintiffs spoliation of evidence. The plaintiffs timely appealed the dismissal of their claims. Discerning no reversible error, we affirm.
