AL Case Blurb: Ex Parte Vulcan Materials; Supreme Court Looks to Federal Rules in Absence of Alabama Solution

Posted by rjbiii on June 21, 2008

Post Process-This is a Case Blurb from the State of Alabama, whose laws regarding discovery will differ from those of the Federal Courts.

[In an earlier case we] acknowledged that, although neither the courts of this state nor the legislature has developed standards for discovery of electronically stored information, the federal court system has addressed such standards. We directed the trial court to consider Cooper’s motion for a protective order in light of Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(b)(2)(B) (“Specific Limitations in Electronically Stored Information”), and the factors set forth in Wiginton v. CB Richard Ellis, Inc., 229 F.R.D. 568 (N.D. Ill. 2004).

Ex parte Vulcan Materials Co., 2008 Ala. LEXIS 79 (Ala. Apr. 25, 2008 )
