Balance Of Interests Favors Access To Documents

The Iowa Supreme Court has affirmed a district court decision to grant a motion to intervene and access to discovery in a case in which Canadian plaintiffs sought documents and data produced by Microsoft in the state court litigation. The court engaged in an extensive discussion of the balancing of interests and concludes:

Microsoft's important interest in confidentiality of the documents and data  is preserved because the Canadian plaintiffs are bound by the terms of the [trial court's] protective order.
