Original Proceeding on Petition for Writ of Mandamus

OPINION

In this petition for writ of mandamus, relator, Howard K. Stern, requests that we direct the trial court to vacate its May 11, 2009 order requiring Stern to produce his computer hard drive to a special master for forensic examination.*fn1 In five issues, Stern contends that the trial court abused its discretion by (1) ordering Stern’s surrender of his hard drive even though Stern is a non-resident defendant with a special appearance pending, (2) ordering the surrender of Stern’s hard drive to a special master when there has been no showing that Stern was noncompliant with responding to discovery or responded in bad faith, (3) authorizing a forensic examiner to determine the relevancy of the documents on Stern’s hard drive, (4) authorizing a forensic examiner for discovery requests that are overbroad and irrelevant to the issue of personal jurisdiction, and (5) ordering Stern to comply with an overbroad order for which there is no adequate remedy by appeal.
