Life Plans Inc. v. Security Life of Denver Ins. Co., No. 11 C 8449, 2014 WL 2879881 (N.D. Ill. June 25, 2014)

Key Insight: Court denied request for costs of ?preparing electronic data to be converted to TIFF format? including ?data loading, data processing, and de-duplication and culling?; regarding OCR costs, the court acknowledged that there is ?less uniformity? about the issue of recovery and awarded costs for converting ESI into a ?readable format? (TIFF Conversion) – the equivalent of ?making copies? under 1920(4) – but denied costs for making that document searchable (OCR), noting that the requesting party had not ?shown why OCR was necessary to the production?

Electronic Data Involved: ESI Taxable costs
