Holland v. Barfield

Case Date: 05/07/2010
Citation: Holland v. Barfield, 35 So. 3d 953 (Fla. 5th DCA 2010)
Court Type: District Court of Appeal
Court: Fla. 5th DCA
Judge: Judge: Jay P. Cohen
Rule(s): Fla. R. Civ. P. 1.280; Fla. R. Civ. P. 1.350

The trial court compelled Petitioner to produce hard drives and SIM cards in her possession, and Petitioner sought a writ of certiorari, alleging that the order gave Respondent access to potentially privileged and/or private materials, and did not allow her to review the materials first before turning them over to Respondent.


The Court quashed the trial court’s order. The order did not protect against potentially confidential or privileged information, and allowed Respondent unfettered access to Petitioner’s information, thereby causing irreparable harm.
