In this case, the trial court ordered a third party to produce documents that were alleged to be confidential, and denied the third party its costs in providing the production.  The appellate court affirmed on the confidentiality issue, but reversed on the costs issue, holding, “The failure to make provision for the cost to a non-party to produce subpoenaed documents constitutes a departure from the essential requirement of law.”
