Citation: Feig v. Apple Org., Inc., No. 08-23358-CIV, 2009 WL 1515506 (S.D. Fla. May 29, 2009)
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Southern District of Florida (S.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal Magistrate Judge: Andrea M. Simonton

Plaintiff filed a motion to compel seeking more complete discovery. Plaintiff requested emails and correspondence about her during her employment, and Defendant argued that the request was unduly burdensome because it was not possible to use a key word search on the emails.


The Court granted Plaintiff’s motion to compel. Assuming a forensic expert examined the server data and was able to conduct a search, Plaintiff’s request would not be unduly burdensome. However, if Defendant could establish that an electronic search was not possible, the Court granted Defendant leave to file a protective order.
