Court Type: Federal District
Court: Southern District of Florida (S.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal District Judge: William J. Zloch
Rule(s): Rule 26; Rule 45

Whether disclosure of Defendant’s sales data in an antitrust suit would outweigh Defendant’s interests in trade secret data, since sales and pricing information in the generic drug market is generally considered trade secret information.


The Court granted the motion to compel. Although Defendant sought protection of trade secret information, the Court found the sales data information necessary for the pending antitrust litigation suit and considered a protective order sufficient to protect Defendant’s trade secret interests.
