In re Clark, 345 S.W.3d 209 (Tex. Ct. App. 2011)

Key Insight: Appellate court concluded that trial court?s order compelling plaintiff?s production of her personal computer and electronic storage devices did not provide sufficient protection for plaintiff?s potentially privileged documents where defendant?s forensic analyst would use search terms such as ?attorney? and ?lawyer? to identify potentially privileged information and, after expressing its confidence that the trial court would vacate its prior order and compel production in a manner that provided adequate protection of privileged information, conditionally granted plaintiff?s petition for mandamus indicating that ?[t]he writ of mandamus shall issue only in the event the trial court fails to act in accordance with this opinion?
