Tort/Negligence – Spoliation of Evidence – Unrecognized in S.C. – Available as Defense (access required)

Cole Vision Corp. v. Hobbs Although spoliation of evidence is available as a defense, it is not recognized as a tort in South Carolina. Denominating defendant’s spoliation counterclaim as one for negligence does not change this outcome. We reverse the Court of Appeals’ ruling that defendant’s counterclaim states a claim of negligence.
