Facts

Teri Tucker (plaintiff) was fired and won a monetary judgment against her former employer. Tucker brought suit against her employer’s insurance company, American International Group, Inc. (AIG) (defendant), to collect the judgment. Tucker sought discovery of the computer records of Lucy Carter, a former employee of Marsh USA, Inc. (Marsh), which was a third-party insurance broker. Tucker wanted to obtain communications between Carter and Tucker’s former employer. Marsh objected to the request, and Tucker filed a motion to compel. Tucker acknowledged that the specific emails she sought possibly did not exist. Further, Tucker conceded that through depositions, she had already obtained relevant information on the relevant issue, including certain emails from Carter. A Marsh employee testified to the significant cost the company would endure, including additional equipment and staff, if required to perform the requested search.
