Boehm v. Eli Lilly & Company et al
ORDER denying 46 Motion to Compel; granting 49 Motion to Compel, as modified; and granting in part and denying in part 55 Motion to Strike. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 12/20/11. (kpr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ELI LILLY & CO. and JOHN DOES A-F
For the reasons stated on the record at the 14 December 2011 hearing,
plaintiff's motion to compel unredacted notes, Document No. 46, is denied.
Plaintiff's motion to compel the deposition testimony of three additional
pharmaceutical representatives, Document No. 49, is granted as modified:
Boehm may depose each representative for two hours on his or her
interactions with Dr. Miller about Zyprexa.
Boehm's motion to strike, Document No. 55, is granted in part and
denied in part. The motion is granted as to paragraphs 60 and 61 of Lilly's
statement of facts, but otherwise denied. The parties shall supplement the
summary-judgment record by 13 January 2012 with a second deposition of
Dr. Miller and any helpful information from the newly deposed
Lilly shall supplement its Rule 56.1
Statement based on the existing and supplemental materials by the same date.
Boehm shall respond to the supplemental Statement by 20 January 2012.
Boehm will also advise the Court by 13 January 2012 about the status
of counts I-VII in his complaint. As the Court noted at the hearing, the parties
have argued the case as if it rises or falls on the warnings issue, Count I. The
Court tends to agree. But the Court requests Boehm's position on whether the
other claims cover any disputed ground beyond the warnings.
Lilly's motion for summary judgment is denied on the limitations point;
the Court will resolve the remaining issues on the supplemented record.
