In Robert Bosch LLC v. Snap-On Inc., No. 12-11503 (E.D. Mich. Mar. 14, 2013), the district court granted the plaintiff’s motion to add two sets of search terms to a defendant’s protocol for locating relevant electronic documents for production. The defendant acknowledged that the terms were relevant, but argued that they were unnecessary and overbroad. The defendant also pointed out that it was already searching documents for the names of all of the products at issue in the case. The court rejected those arguments, finding that the additional search terms “may uncover relevant documents that do not contain the accused products’ names.” The court also held that the defendant could “use techniques to limit any over production,” such as “agreed-upon proximity connectors.”
