In re Am. Nurses Assoc., No. 08-CV-0378 2013 WL 588992 (D. Md. Feb. 13, 2013)

Key Insight: Relying on Fed R Civ P 45(c), court granted third party?s request to shift discovery costs related to its search for and production of requested information and noted that the costs could have been controlled had plaintiffs participated in the selection of an e-Discovery vendor more quickly following the court?s original order shifting costs (the Scope of Work and the Estimated Cost Overview had been amended six times) and had plaintiffs sought the at-issue documents from the defendant hospitals first, rather than a third party; court declined to shift all of the third party?s attorneys fees, however, noting that ?[s]ubpoenas are a cost of doing business in today?s society?
