Duffy v. Lawrence Mem?l Hosp., No. 2:14-v-2256-SAC-TJJ, 2017 WL 1277808 (D. Kan. Mar. 31, 2017)

Key Insight: Despite previously ordering production of ESI, court considered motion for protective order by defendant after the ?enormity of the task became apparent? and granted the motion in light of defendant?s presentation of evidence showing that responding to the at-issue requests would take 8,982 hours of work at a cost of $230,000, if accomplished by contract staff; court indicated that it found ?merit? in Defendant?s proposal to provide a random sample of the at-issue information ?from a standpoint of accuracy,? reasoning that ?human error would be a realistic factor? if Defendant were to employ contract workers to conduct a manual review of all of the records under time constraints
