Last August we posted about a notable clerk’s order in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania that taxed, as costs, several hundred thousand dollar’s worth of e-discovery expenses against the losing party in an antitrust case.

We thought that was notable because, in prescription medical product liability litigation, our clients’ e-discovery costs are typically orders of magnitude greater than anything the other side has to spend. Thus, when it comes to taxing e-discovery as costs that the prevailing party can recover, we’re probably going to have lots more costs to tax than does the other side when they win.
