CBT Flint Partners, LLC v. Return Path, Inc., 2009 WL 5159761 (N.D. Ga. Dec. 30, 2009)

Key Insight: Recognizing a ?division of opinion? as to whether e-discovery vendor costs are recoverable, court called the ?highly technical? services provided by the e-discovery vendor the ?21st century equivalent of making copies,? noted that ?taxation of these costs will encourage litigants to exercise restraint in burdening the opposing party with the huge cost of unlimited demand for electronic discovery? and overruled and denied plaintiff?s objection to taxation as costs of the e-discovery consultant?s fees; Summary judgment reversed and costs vacated in CBT Flint Partners, LLC v. Return Path, Inc., Nos. 1010-1201, 2010-1203, 2011 WL 3487023 (Fed. Cir. Aug. 10, 2011)
