Kayne v. The Grande Holdings (Cal. Ct. App. - Sept. 2, 2011)

I can definitely shorthand this one.  Which essentially amounts to the following dialogue:

Party 1:  "We'd like some relevant documents, please."

Party 2:  "Pound sand.  Here are 30,000 pages you already have."

Party 1:  "No, seriously.  We'll file a motion if we need to."

Party 2:  "Okay.  Here's a dump of 60,000 more pages.  Totally unorganized."

Party 1:  "Trial court, please help."

Trial Court:  "Definitely.  Party 2 to pay $75,000 in sanctions."

Court of Appeal:  "Affirmed."
