Plaintiff moved to compel production of emails that were previously withheld.


The Court granted Plaintiff’s motion to compel in part. Although Plaintiff showed a substantial need for production of the email chain and the inability to obtain the information elsewhere, Defendant’s work product privilege still protected against the disclosure of the information. However, with respect to the August 27 email chain, Defendant was unable to show a work product privilege objection and the Court granted the motion to compel with respect to the chain.
