In Smith v. Loube Consulting Int'l., Inc., [Ms. 1081317, March 12, 2010] ___ So.3d ___ (Ala. 2010), the Supreme Court of Alabama granted a defendant's writ of mandamus and directed a trial court to enter a protective order regarding plaintiff's unduly burdensome discovery requests. There, the discovery requested by the plaintiffs was not directly related to the merits of the plaintiff's claim, and would have required the defendant to spend thousands of hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars to answer.
