Grunstein v. SilvaAnnotate this Case
CFG produced to defendants 5,000 pages of pleadings and court filings from an action pending in Maryland and later produced 238,000 pages worth of its own documents that it had already produced in the Maryland action. CFG produced all of the documents as Highly Confidential, so that only four of the attorneys representing defendants could review the documents. Defendants moved to vacate the designation. The court determined that defense attorneys may review the documents if they certify that during the pendency of this case they will neither be involved in the New York Litigation, nor represent any client in a matter involving the purchase or sale (including financing) of any nursing home or adult assisted living center. The Court declined to de-designate any of the documents as Highly Confidential; CFG, through its counsel, is to review, within 30 days of the date of this letter opinion, all of the Discovery Documents that refer to Beverly, and determine whether those documents are entitled to be designated Highly Confidential.
