On appeal, The Court of Appeals of Michigan recognized that the trial court never ordered the Manager to disclose the documents. Thus, Jordan hadn’t obtained them as a result of a court order, a prerequisite for damages awards. And, since the documents had already been disclosed, the remainder of the suit was moot. Therefore, the trial court’s dismissal of the case was affirmed. See: Jordan v. Martimucci, 101 Mich.App. 212; 300 N.W.2d 325 (1980).
