In SEC v. Collins & Aikman Corp. (S.D.N.Y. 2009), the SEC dumped more than
10 million pages on Collins & Aikman. The judge was unhappy with this
maneuver, writing that Rule 34 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
prohibits “simply dumping large quantities of unrequested materials onto
the discovering party along with the items actually sought.”
The judge also frowned on the SEC’s claim that the plaintiff’s attorney
could locate the relevant information by merely reviewing the submitted
e-documents. “A page-by-page manual review of ten million pages of records
is strikingly expensive in both monetary and human terms and constitutes
‘undue hardship’ by any definition,” wrote Judge Scheindlin
