LBI, Inc. v. Sparks, No. KNLCV, 2016 WL 351850 (Conn. Super. Ct. Jan. 4, 2016)

Key Insight: Court declined to find ESI ?not reasonably accessible? because of the alleged cost of production where the case at issue was worth $4.5 million and thus the alleged costs did not appear ?sufficiently disproportionate,? where the defendant did not allege a lack of resources, and where defendant had a ?significant interest? in performing the discovery work in a manner that controlled costs but made two exceptions as to documents that would need to be culled and separately recoded and restored before they could be searched and as to documents that needed to be converted to a searchable format to determine tier potential relevance; court ordered parties to confer re: production protocol and cost shifting
