Douglas v. Kohl’s Dep’t Stores

Case Date: 04/25/2016
Citation: 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 54782
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Middle District of Florida (M.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal Magistrate Judge: Thomas Smith
Rule(s): Rule 34

Plaintiff filed a motion to compel Defendant to produce documents related to communication between her and the company and internal communication from directors, vice president’s and compliance directors for a claim under the Telephone Communication Protection Act (TCPA).


The court granted in part and denied in part. The court held that Defendant must produce its communication with Plaintiff due to Defendant’s production of documents after the motion to compel was filed and their failure to state whether any responsive documents are being withheld based on their objections. The court held that the Plaintiff failed to show how the internal communication between its directors, and vice presidents, and compliance directors would aid her claim against Defendant when Defendant produced all its communication and material related with complying with the TCPA.

Relevant Documents:

Plaintiff’ Second Motion to Compel and Incorporated Memorandum of Law (Doc. 41)
