Court Type: Federal District
Court: Middle District of Florida (M.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal Magistrate Judge: Thomas B. Smith
Rule(s): Rule 26; Rule 45

Defendant moved to compel production of documents from a non-party.  Non-party objected to the subpoenaed documents on grounds that the documents were protected by attorney-client privilege and work product privilege, and the production of the documents would be unduly burdensome.


The Court denied Defendant’s motion to compel. The Court found no merit in Defendant’s attorney-client and work product objections, but found that the motion to compel was overbroad and imposed an undue burden on non-party Beachside Legal Services.
