Sung v. Mission Valley Renewable Energy, LLC, No. CV-11-5163-RMP, 2013 WL 4523561 (E.D. Wash. Aug. 27, 2013)

Key Insight: Where defendants received plaintiff?s production of approximately 3,600 electronic documents less than two weeks before trial was to begin, and defendants were only able to obtain the documents after they arranged for an independent electronic discovery review in response to plaintiff?s prior discovery abuses, court found that the circumstances of case were extraordinary, that plaintiff acted willfully and in bad faith in violating FRCP 26, 37 and the court?s scheduling order, and that analysis of the five relevant factors warranted dismissal of plaintiff?s claims against each defendant with prejudice

Nature of Case: Washington State Securities Act claims, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and related claims

Electronic Data Involved: 3,600 electronic documents which, if printed out, would total more than 10,000 pages
