Last week, Special Master David A. White issued an opinion on a number of discovery issues relating to a motion to compel in XPRT Ventures, LLC. v. eBay, Inc., C.A. No. 10-595-SLR (D. Del. June 15, 2011). The motion sought to expand the scope of document discovery by increasing the applicable time period and number of custodians. Special Master White granted the motion in part, based on the potential relevance of the evidence, but refused to order document production from individuals not employed by the defendants. Id. at 26-27. Documents of former employees that are still in the possession, custody or control of the defendants, however, are subject to discovery. Id. at 30.
