Commercial List Motion to continue and set aside a Mareva injunction. After disposing of the motion, Justice Brown provided an Appendix with standard case management directions for proceedings case-managed by him. The E-discovery section reads: “Counsel must explore creative ways to ensure that e-discovery costs remain proportionate to the complexity of the issues and the amount of money at stake in the case.  Those creative ways can include (i) limiting the number of issues on which initial documentary discovery can be made, (ii) delaying e-mail documentary discovery until after core documents related to the limited issues have been exchanged, and then (iii) limiting the scope of e-mail documentary discovery.”
