Case No. 1:11-cv-00025 KGB
TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION,
TOYOTA MOTOR SALES, U.S.A., INC.,
and TK HOLDINGS, INC.
On December 5, 2013, this Court ordered plaintiff’s expert witness Robert M. Hooker to
be present for deposition in Little Rock, AR on December 11 or 12, 2013, or provide the Court
before 10:00 a.m. Central Time on December 9, 2013, good reason as to why Mr. Hooker is
unavailable on those dates (Dkt. No. 85). Plaintiff responded by saying that Mr. Hooker is
unavailable on those dates due to his involvement in a trial in California, but that he is available
on December 18 or 20, 2013 (Dkt. No. 86). Defendants replied noting that Mr. Hooker did not
say he was unavailable on December 12, 2013, but on December 10 and 11, 2013, and that
defense counsel is unavailable to take Mr. Hooker’s deposition on December 18 and 20, 2013
(Dkt. No. 87). Defendants move that Mr. Hooker be struck as a testifying expert. Plaintiff’s
counsel communicated to the Court that Mr. Hooker will also be in trial in California on
December 12, 2013.
The Court will conduct a telephone conference on this matter on Wednesday, December
11, 2013, beginning at 1:30 p.m. The call-in information is as follows:
SO ORDERED this 10th day of December, 2013.
