ORDER GRANTING plf's ORAL MOTION for Protective Order to the extent plf seeks to reschedule her deposition, and DENIED in all other respects, as further set out in order. Signed by Honorable Judge Gray M. Borden on 6/13/17. (djy, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
THE CITY OF DOTHAN, ALABAMA,
CASE NO.: 1:16cv1011-MHT-GMB
During the court’s telephonic conference on this date, Plaintiff moved orally for a
Protective Order, arguing that it would be unduly burdensome for her to sit for deposition
at the offices of Defendant’s counsel in Birmingham, Alabama. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(c).
That motion is GRANTED in part and DENIED in part.
In support of her request,
Plaintiff explained that, although she filed suit in the Southern Division of the Middle
District of Alabama, she now resides in a suburb of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
addition, Plaintiff prefers not to travel out of town without her husband, and he was not
available to accompany her on the scheduled date for her deposition.
Defendant’s counsel agreed to accommodate Plaintiff’s request to reschedule the
deposition, and the parties agreed that Plaintiff will appear in person for her deposition at
Defendant’s counsel’s offices on June 28, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. (CST).
Accordingly, Plaintiff’s oral Motion for Protective Order is GRANTED to the
extent Plaintiff seeks to reschedule her deposition, and DENIED in all other respects.
Plaintiff is cautioned that her failure to appear at the designated time and place for her
deposition—unless other arrangements are made well in advance by agreement with
Defendant’s counsel—will be considered an intentional refusal to participate in the
discovery process and may result in sanctions up to and including the dismissal of this
DONE on the 13th day of June, 2017.
