Hull v. WTI, Inc.,—S.E.2d—, 2013 WL 2996191 (Ga. Ct. App. June 18, 2013)

Key Insight: Where defendants produced 156,000 documents as they were kept in the ordinary course of business but where the documents were insufficiently organized and only the documents? indexes and not the documents themselves were text searchable, the trial court did not abuse its discretion in holding that the production was not consistent with Defendants? discovery obligations; appellate court noted that trial court did not hold that parties are prohibited from producing documents as kept in the ordinary course of business but rather than in this instance, ?under these circumstances,? the production was not appropriate

Nature of Case: Breach of contract, trade secret misappropriations, and “other business tort claims” and counterclaims

Electronic Data Involved: Scanned hard copy and miscellaneous ESI (e.g., email)
