Case Date: 03/23/2005
Citation: Coleman (Parent) Holdings, Inc. v. Morgan Stanley & Co., No. CA 03-5045 AI, 2005 WL 674885 (Fla. 15th Cir. Ct. Mar. 23, 2005)
Court Type: Florida State Court
Court: Circuit Court
Judge: Judge: Elizabeth Marie T. Maass
Rule(s): Fla. R. Civ. P. 1.380

Plaintiff filed a Renewed Motion for Entry of Default Judgment for continued violations of discovery orders.


The Court granted the motion in part. Defendant’s discovery violations infected the entire discovery process. Defendant failed to account for numerous backup tapes in a timely manner, ran search scripts that were defective without notifying Plaintiff, and sought to hide from the Court certain essential information because of an SEC inquiry. Even after the Court granted an adverse inference on March 1, 2005, Defendant’s discovery abuses continued unabated.
