The petitioners for writ of mandamus challenge the trial court's order in the underlying case requiring that they turn over certain computer and network server hard drives and native-format documents. The trial court abused its discretion in compelling relators to turn over their computer and network server hard drives without requiring the real party in interest to demonstrate that relators defaulted on their discovery obligations or their production had been otherwise inadequate. The petition is conditionally granted. Houston's 1st Court of Appeals, No. 01-12-01105-CV, 03-12-2013.
