Plaintiff moves to compel answers in a dispute about a share purchase transaction. Defendant had produced very few emails, which lead to the conclusion that there had been an inadequate search of electronic sources of information. "In my view, a proper search of the electronic documents must be done, including a search of the hard drive and back up tapes, and all relevant documents produced. In addition, counsel for the defendants must advise as to the nature and the scope of the search efforts to the plaintiffs."
