November 20, 2017

JON FLOWERS, Plaintiff,
v.

          LANE POWELL PC D. Michael Reilly Attorneys for Defendant Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

          ROCKE LAW Group, PLLC Peter Montine Attorney for Plaintiff Jon Flowers

          ORDER

          JOHN C. COUGHENOUR UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE.

         This matter comes before the Court on the parties' stipulated motion regarding the discovery of electronically stored information (“ESI”) (Dkt. No. 28). Pursuant to the parties' stipulation, the Court ORDERS the following:

         A. General Principles

         1. An attorney's zealous representation of a client is not compromised by conducting discovery in a cooperative manner. The failure of counsel or the parties to litigation to cooperate in facilitating and reasonably limiting discovery requests and responses raises litigation costs and contributes to the risk of sanctions.

         2. The proportionality standard set forth in Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(b)(1) must be applied in each case when formulating a discovery plan. To further the application of the proportionality standard in discovery, requests for production of ESI and related responses should be reasonably targeted, clear, and as specific as possible.

         B. ESI Disclosures

         Within 30 days after the Rule 26(f) conference, or at a later time if agreed to by the parties, each party shall disclose:

         1. Custodians. The five custodians most likely to have discoverable ESI in their possession, custody or control. The custodians shall be identified by name, title, connection to the instant litigation, and the type of the information under his/her control.

Plaintiff's Custodian:
a. Jon Flowers, Plaintiff. Emails and documents.
Defendant's Custodians:
a. Jon Flowers, Employee Relations Supervisor, Plaintiff. Mr. Flowers emails ...
