An appeal from a finding of contempt for the destruction of documents. The chambers judge found the individual appellant in contempt for counselling the health and safety consultant to destroy documents, for the material purpose of interfering with the administration of justice: Fuller Western Rubber Linings Ltd. v Spence Corrosion Services Ltd., 2012 ABQB 163 at para. 41. Based on the uncontested facts, the Court saw no reviewable error in the finding of contempt. However, the remedy requiring a forensic audit of the computer from which the file had been deleted was itself deleted.
