UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
STEPHEN HALE, et al.,
Case No.: 1:15-CV-01042 DAD JLT
ORDER AFTER STATUS CONFERENCE
ENSIGN UNITED STATES DRILLING
(CALIFORNIA) Inc., et al.,
The Court held a status conference on September 19, 2016. At the conference, defense
counsel represented that the defendants have produced all documents she believed were implicated
by the motion for summary judgment. She was less certain, though she believed, that the
defendants had produced all metadata associated with the documents.
The plaintiffs’ counsel indicated he received another batch of metadata yesterday and could
not state whether this completed the production. Therefore, the Court ORDERS:
The plaintiffs’ counsel SHALL review the document production and SHALL notify
the defendants in writing of any incompleteness by September 23, 2016. If the plaintiffs contend that
the defendants should produce additional documents, they SHALL demonstrate in their written
request for the additional documents how the additional documents bear on the issues raised in the
motion for summary judgment;
The defendants SHALL respond in writing within two court days. If the defendants
disagree that any further production is required, they SHALL demonstrate in their response how the
additional documents will not bear on the issues raised in the motion for summary judgment;
If there is a disagreement, counsel SHALL meet and confer, either in person or by
telephone, no later than September 30, 2016;
Counsel SHALL file a joint report no later than October 5, 2016, setting forth the
current status of the matter;
The Court sets a further status conference on October 12, 2016 at 9:00 a.m. Counsel
may appear by telephone via the CourtCall service;
The briefing schedule on the motion for summary judgment is VACATED. The Court
will re-set the deadlines once it is clear whether further document production is required.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
