Issues:

In a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act case, Plaintiff alleged Defendants defrauded roughly $23 million. Plaintiff moved to compel Defendants to respond to Plaintiff’s request for documents.

Resolution:

The Court granted Plaintiff’s motion to compel based on Defendants’ unresponsiveness to discovery responsibilities and inability to state a good cause for not providing the required information. The Court ordered Defendants to respond with an affidavit outlining their procedure for identifying responsive documents, and called for an independent expert to examine Defendants’ computer system. Based on Defendants’ sluggish response with no valid explanation, the Court ordered Defendants to pay the cost of Plaintiff’s motion to compel.
