Citation: Chavannes v. Protective Life Ins. Co., 232 F.R.D. 698 (S.D. Fla. 2006)
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Southern District of Florida (S.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal Magistrate Judge: Barry L. Garber
Issues:

Defendant insurance company moved to compel the production of a funeral video in a case where the death of a life insurance beneficiary was not conclusively proven by Plaintiff.

Resolution:

The Court granted Defendant’s motion to compel. Plaintiff failed to give a proper basis for any work product objection and constantly changed his assertion as to whether video of the funeral or interment existed. The Court ordered Plaintiff to produce the video if it existed, as well as any other videos obtained by Plaintiff, and to explain his reasoning behind the assertion that the video did not exist when Plaintiff had previously argued numerous times such a video existed.
