Judge Forrest orders meet and confer to narrow discovery dispute

Explore:  Discovery Evidence

JobDiva, Inc. v. Monster Worldwide, Inc.

Case Number: 1:13–cv-08229–KBF

Saying, “[t]here is no way the court would ever order 5000+ custodians to be searched (on this record),” Judge Forrest ordered the parties to meet and confer to attempt to narrow a list of custodians whose documents must be searched. She noted that “10 seems right.” Should the parties fail to agree, she ordered JobDiva to provide the court “with specific detail as to who else it needs and why.”
