During trial, the court learned that Qualcomm and its counsel did not produce more than 200,000 pages of relevant electronic documents. As a result, Qualcomm was ordered to pay Broadcom's hefty legal fees ($8.5 million)...This is, according to e-discovery expert Adam Sand, one of the heaviest e-discovery fines. And although this might be 'old' news by now, I think that it is still highly relevant. Cases of such gross negligence are hard to come by, but it does prove that it can happen. And 8.5 million is a lot.
