– If you are injured by another, you are required to do whatever you can to reduce the amount of your harm. This is called mitigation of damages, and if you fail to do it, you may end up getting less in your lawsuit.
– “Spoliation of Evidence” is the legal term for destroying something that you ought to know is going to be important to a lawsuit, whether it has been filed yet or not. You can be sanctioned – punished – by the court if you do so. And no, that’s not a typo – it really is spelled “spoliation.”
