Here is a case update from the Electronic Discovery Law blog about a group of lawyers involved in the  Qualcomm v. Broadcom trial in federal court in California, who  are now suffering a "world of hurt" for not being in control of e-discovery issues, as evidenced by their apparent failure to search for and produce about 200,000 emails until several months after trial. The foregoing post links to background details including the "Order to Show Cause" issued by the court that requires them to explain why they should not incur the court’s wrath. The court noted their apparent failure to use basic search terms to look for emails from key witnesses.
