Spoliation in a legal context refers to the destruction, mutilation, alteration, or concealment of evidence. In British Columbia, those who suffer due to spoliation may be entitled to one or more of a variety of remedies. This project sheds some light on the existing sanctions for spoliation of evidence in relation to civil trials, the policy goals underlying those sanctions, and the ways in which the law may be reformed.
