    In what promises to be an important ruling going forward, Judge Furman in his June 11 opinion sided with the Eleventh Circuit and held that “Section 1782 imposes no geographical limit on the production of documents.” In re Application of Accent Delight Int’l, Ltd., No. 16-MC-125, 2018 WL 2849724, at *4 (S.D.N.Y. June 11, 2018).
