The Court further orders Defendants to produce to Plaintiffs’ counsel in a usable electronic format no later than seven (7) days from entry of the Court’s Order, the names, last known addresses, last known residential and cell phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and dates Case 3:13-cv-02951-B Document 5-1 Filed 07/31/13 Page 1 of 2 PageID 55
