Hanwha Azdel, Inc. v. C&D Zodiac, Inc., No. 6:12-cv-00023, 2012 WL 6726412 (W.D. Va. Dec. 27, 2012)

Key Insight: Where Defendant produced forty gigabytes of material on a single memory stick organized into folders by search term, with no other organization by custodian or otherwise, court noted that ?[o]rganizing a production to reflect how the information is kept ?in the usual course of business? sometimes requires the producing party to include different identifying information according to the type of document or file produced,? and that ?[e]mails specifically are produced in the usual course of business when responsive emails are arranged ?by custodian, in chronological order and with attachments, if any?? and found that the production was not in an appropriate format in this case; court ordered Defendant to bear the costs to convert the ESI into a readily usable format (estimated to be $8,463.00)

Electronic Data Involved: ESI
