Issues:

Defendant insurer moved to compel Insurer moved to compel production of responsive documents and a forensic analysis of Plaintiffs’ computers. Plaintiff objected alleging production would result in duplicative discovery and would be unduly burdensome based on Plaintiffs’ status as non-profit condominium associations

Resolution:

The Court granted Defendant’s motion to compel. As Plaintiffs did not timely object to Defendant’s motion, their objections were waived. However, even assuming their objections were not waived, the Court held Defendant’s request for electronically stored information would not result in duplicative discovery, and that Defendant’s desire for a forensic examination was fair based on Plaintiffs’ uncooperative behavior in examining the electronically stored information. The Court therefore ordered an independent examiner to conduct a forensic analysis of Plaintiffs’ computers.
