A city attorney who destroyed evidence when advising one of Ocado’s co-founders has been found guilty of contempt of court, the Supreme Court has ruled.

Raymond McKeeve had a “significant and adverse effect on justice” when he ordered an IT executive at a company founded by Jonathan Faiman to “burn” messages during a corporate espionage investigation, while trying to prevent material from falling into the hands of online grocer Ocado.

Faiman had a legal dispute with the retailer, who accused him of using confidential information to launch a rival. McKeeve previously apologized for his “serious error of judgment.” Ocado said, “We felt compelled to bring this attorney’s actions to the attention of the court.” A hearing in October will determine McKeeve’s sentence.
