Ibrahim v. Department of Homeland et al
ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR HEARING by Hon. William Alsup denying 503 Motion for Hearing.(whalc1, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 7/23/2013)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 06-00545 WHA
REQUEST FOR HEARING
DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND
SECURITY, et al.,
Plaintiff’s counsel contends that the government may have reviewed plaintiff’s emails as
part of the recently-publicized PRISM program. The government has refused to answer
questions on this topic from plaintiff’s counsel via email correspondence and has requested that
plaintiff’s counsel adhere to standard discovery procedures. Dissatisfied with this response,
plaintiff’s counsel has filed a “request for hearing” that does not comport with the local rules or
the Court’s supplemental order (Dkt. No. 359).
The “request for hearing” constitutes an end-run around the discovery rules and is
accordingly DENIED. Plaintiff’s counsel is requested to please comply with the Civil Local
Rules and the Court’s supplemental order for all future filings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 22, 2013.
