Production of electronically stored information (ESI) is now an expected part of the discovery process, and it is important for counsel to be aware of the recent First Department decision in Tener v. Cremer1 which addressed a variety of issues concerning a nonparty’s obligation to produce ESI.

Hewlett Packard Co.,2 held that a party must index its ESI to each specific document demand and ordered that responsive materials need to be produced in electronic form (including its metadata), even if “hard” copies of such materials have been produced already.
