In this employment case, the plaintiff motioned for spoliation sanctions against her former employer, the defendant, for not preserving the plaintiff’s work computer.

I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking.
