Case Date: 03/20/1996
Citation: Strasser v. Yalamanchi, 669 So. 2d 1142 (Fla. 4th DCA 1996)
Court Type: District Court of Appeal
Court: Fla. 4th DCA
Judge: Judge: Barbara Pariente
Rule(s): Fla. R. Civ. P. 1.350

Defendant sought petition to reverse trial court’s order for discovery, alleging the discovery order was overbroad and an invasion of privacy.


The Court granted the petition and quashed the order. The trial court’s discovery order gave Plaintiff unfettered access to Defendant’s computer without any safeguards in place to protect any privileged or private information. The Court noted that the discovery order may have been appropriate if Plaintiff could show there was no other reasonable means of obtaining the information, as well as a specific restricted search to protect privileged information.
