LEXICON, INC. d/b/a

NO. 4:10CV00010 JLH
W & W STEEL COMPANY;

Lexicon, Inc., has filed a motion for an order extending the deposition time limit. Lexicon
states that the deposition of the defendants’ Fed. R. Civ. P. 30(b)(6) designee or designees will
require longer than one day of seven hours. Rule 30(d)(1) limits the duration of a deposition to one
day of seven hours unless otherwise stipulated or ordered by the Court. The defendants responded
by stating that they do not object to the motion for an order extending the deposition time limit
provided that the deposition is conducted efficiently and not in bad faith nor so as to annoy,
embarrass, or unreasonably oppress the deponent or the defendants. The defendants also request that
any order apply to the 30(b)(6) deposition which they anticipate scheduling.
For good cause shown and without objection, the motion is granted. Document #33. The
depositions of 30(b)(6) designees by the parties in this case may extend longer than one day of seven
In their response, the defendants have requested that the discovery deadline be extended up
to and including September 12, 2011, and they state that the plaintiff joins in that request. That
request is therefore granted. The discovery deadline is extended up to and including September 12,
IT IS SO ORDERED this 15th day of June, 2011.
