Re: Civil discovery process?

During this kind of order, a "neutral" third-party (lawyer or audit firm) will review the evidence seized to make sure nothing pertaining to attorney-client privilege is accessed by the plaintiff. The defendant can refuse to give access to his computers, but by doing so exposes himself to being charged with contempt. See Anton Piller order for more info.
