WRIT OF PROHIBITION:
2005-SC-001021-MR.pdf
PUBLISHED: 1214 AFFIRMING IN PART AND REVERSING IN PART
OPINION WRITTEN BY –  NOBLE
DATE RENDERED:  10/31/2007

The Supreme Court denies Edwards’ petition for writ of prohibition that sought to bar the enforcement of the trial court’s Order compelling Edwards to disclose proprietary business records of both his company that is a named party as well as non-party companies he also owned as sole partner, the Court ruling that such documents were discoverable from Edwards under CR 34.01 for both the party and non-party companies since all requested records were undeniably in the possession, custody or control of the party upon whom the request was served (Edwards).
