In re Classicstar Mare Lease Litig., 2009 WL 260954 (E.D. Ky. Feb. 2, 2009)
In this case, despite prior production in accordance with the Federal Rules, the court enforced a promise to produce in native format but ordered the requesting party to bear the costs.
This matter came before the court on the motion of GeoStar Corporation for relief from the court’s order requiring it to produce financial information in its native format. Plaintiffs originally requested financial information from GeoStar “as they are kept in the usual course of business” or organized and labeled in a manner prescribed. GeoStar objected, but the court ultimately entered orders requiring production. The orders did not specify the format of production.
