Earth-moon L5 Long-Term Stability
The debris of such a collision would mostly remain in the Lagrange point volume, and probably cause a risk in that volume so would need to be cleared up. Orbits around a Lagrange point can be quite large, so the debris could be quite sparse- but if secondary collisions occur then a Kessler Syndrome situation could develop.
In the early scenario I expect that scrap collectors would be employed to collect dead satellites and the results of such collisions; later, with the emergence of competent AI, such collisions would be rare unless they are caused with malicious intent.
