Cost of discovery
In this employment discrimination case, see why the judge shifted discovery costs to the plaintiff's counsel for not consulting with his client.
In Hawa v. Coatesville Area Sch. Dist., employment discrimination lawsuit, the court denied the defendant cost-shifting for making ESI searchable
In class-action employment case Williams v. Angie's List, the court finds that information ‘possessed’ by a party is subject to e-discovery.
Court upholds plaintiff’s limited request for discovery as proportional despite exorbitant cost quoted by the responding party.
Earlier in the case, the court had curtailed the plaintiffs’ request for the same information, but they renewed their request in a motion to reconsider.
The court affirmed the district court's ruling that imaging was properly considered a taxable e-discovery cost under 28 U.S.C. § 1920(4).
