Balfour Beatty Rail, Inc. v. Vaccarello

Case Date: 01/18/2007
Citation: Balfour Beatty Rail, Inc. v. Vaccarello, Case No. 3:06-cv-551-J-20MCR, 2007 WL 169628 (M.D. Fla. Jan. 18, 2007)
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Middle District of Florida (M.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal Magistrate Judge: Monte C. Richardson
Rule(s): Rule 34; Rule 37

Plaintiff filed a motion to compel, claiming Defendants needed better responses to discovery requests.


The Court denied Plaintiff’s motion to compel, and noted that Plaintiff’s counsel did not make a good faith effort to resolve the issues in the motion before filing it, as Defendants agreed to produce better responses to all but three of the discovery requests prior to the order. Plaintiff sought the hard drives of Defendants used for Balfour Beatty business purposes, but made no specific requests as to material contained on the hard drives. Based on Defendants’ cooperation, the Court noted an inspection of Defendants’ hard drives would amount to little more than a fishing expedition.
