Case Date: 09/15/2008
Citation: Goodbys Creek, LLC v. Arch Ins. Co., No. 3:07-cv-947-J-34HTS, 2008 WL 4279693 (M.D. Fla. Sept. 15, 2008)
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Middle District of Florida (M.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal Magistrate Judge: Howard T. Snyder
Rule(s): Rule 26; Rule 34
Issues:

Plaintiff filed a motion to compel, seeking production of certain documents and their production in a searchable format. Plaintiff also filed a motion for sanctions.

Resolution:

The Court granted in part and denied in part Plaintiff’s motion to compel. To the extent Plaintiff sought all communications between the general contractor and Defendant, the court held such a request was overbroad. However, the Court compelled production of documents reflecting potential insolvency on behalf of the general contractor as they were relevant and discoverable. Additionally, the Court compelled production of the documents in their native format, as Defendant’s transformation to TIFF images made the documents much more burdensome to search. The Court denied Plaintiff’s motion for sanctions.

Relevant Documents:

Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel and Sanctions (Doc. 57) Part 1

Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel and Sanctions (Doc. 57) Part 2

Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel and Sanctions (Doc. 57) Part 3

Defendant’s Reponse to Motion to Compel and Sanctions (Doc. 61)

Order on Plaintiff’s Motion to Compell and Sanctions (Doc. 83)

E-Discovery Issues: Motion for Sanctions, Motion to Compel
E-discovery Tags: Form of Production, Preservation and Collection, Relevancy, Sanctions, TIFF Images
