Court Orders Defendant to Re-Produce Documents Previously Produced as TIFF Images, Setting Out Three Format of Production Options
Goodbys Creek, LLC v. Arch Ins. Co., 2008 WL 4279693 (M.D. Fla. Sept. 15, 2008)
In this case involving the alleged breach of a performance bond, the court considered plaintiff’s motion to compel and for sanctions. Among other things, plaintiff requested that defendant be ordered to re-produce, in native format, documents previously produced as TIFF images. The court granted only that portion of the motion, and gave the defendant three options for its re-production: (1) provide any documents previously supplied as TIFF images in their native format, (2) provide the documents in another comparably searchable format, or (3) supply plaintiff with software for searching the TIFF images.
