1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 RAHINAH IBRAHIM, Plaintiff, v. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, et al., Defendants. / ORDER CHANGING HEARING DATE AND RESPONDING TO NON-PARTIES' LETTER RE MOTION TO QUASH No. C 06-00545 WHA IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA United States District Court 11 For the Northern District of California 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 This action challenges the placement of plaintiff's name on the "no-fly list." An order dated July 27, 2009, dismissed all federal government defendants, including the Department of State, FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and Transportation Security Administration, from this action (Dkt. No. 197). On November 5, 2009, plaintiff moved to compel the former federal defendants to produce responses to various special interrogatories and requests for production (Dkt. No. 231). The former federal defendants filed an opposition to plaintiff's motion on November 12, 2009 (Dkt. No. 243). On November 13, 2009, former federal defendants DOS, FBI, DHS, and TSA filed letter objecting to four subpoenas served on them and their employees by plaintiffs (Dkt. No. 245). These objections track many of the same arguments made in the November 12 opposition. A formal motion to quash the subpoenas has not been filed. If these entities wish to have this Court consider their objections, they must file a formal motion to quash the subpoenas. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 The motion to quash will be expedited per the schedule below because it recites basically the same issue already briefed and will be more convenient, for all concerned, for all motions to be heard at the same time. The former federal defendants and the San Francisco defendants have likewise filed letters requesting that the hearing currently scheduled for Wednesday, November 25, 2009, be continued to at least the following week, in light of the impending Thanksgiving holiday (Dkt. Nos. 24647). Rather than postpone the hearing, we will move up the hearing date to accommodate the parties' schedules. The following schedule will now apply: The motion to quash, to be heard on shortened time, must be filed by TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2009, AT NOON. Plaintiff's opposition to the motion to quash must be filed by THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009, AT NOON. The hearing for plaintiff's motion to compel production of documents and answers to interrogatories as to the federal defendants (Dkt. No. 231), defendant's motion for order authorizing disclosures by San Francisco defendants (Dkt. No. 238), and the pending motion to quash the subpoenas will take place on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2009, AT 9:00 A.M. United States District Court 11 For the Northern District of California 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: November 13, 2009.
