8. Law Office of David Steinfeld, P.L. David Steinfeld's Courtroom Video 4 At the beginning of the trial, the judge struck the defendant's counterclaim and some defenses because it hid material evidence from Mr. Steinfeld's clients. That fact came to light right before the trial in a deposition and that hidden evidence proved Mr. Steinfeld's case, which is why the defendant tried to hide it.
In this video, Board Certified expert business attorney David Steinfeld addresses the appellant’s claim that the trial judge abused his discretion when he sanctioned them for hiding that evidence. Sanctions must be tailored to the conduct. The appellate court had to weigh whether the punishment fit the crime. The appellate judges all agreed with Mr. Steinfeld and upheld the trial judge's sanction.
