1 2 3 4 5 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 6 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 7 8 9 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 LISA GARVEY, individually and on behalf of others similarly situated, Plaintiff, 12 13 14 No. C 11-02575 WHA ORDER REGARDING DEPOSITION OF JEFF BECKMAN v. KMART CORPORATION, Defendant. / 15 16 Upon review the parties’ letter correspondence, defendant’s letter will be construed as a 17 request for a modification of the April 4 order. To the following extent, the request is 18 GRANTED. Kmart shall make Jeff Beckman available for live (in person) deposition in San 19 Francisco on APRIL 17, the day after he returns from his humanitarian trip to Haiti. Kmart has 20 not shown good cause for any further extension based on vaguely-described “east coast . . . 21 meetings in which he will be delivering presentations.” The deadline for plaintiff’s motion for 22 class certification will be extended until APRIL 29 AT NOON. 23 Kmart contends that plaintiff’s March 6 discovery request seeking “information . . . 24 related to design, re-design, construction, remodeling, configuration, reconfiguration, alterations, 25 additions, and/or modifications . . . to the front end cashier stations at the Petaluma store” does 26 not implicate the Customer Touch Point stations because Kmart “purchased new checkouts in 27 support of that initiative.” This contention is rejected. Kmart’s contention that it only became 28 aware of plaintiff’s interest in the Customer Touch Point issue at the April 4 hearing is likewise rejected. This order notes that Kmart has agreed to produce all responsive hard-copy documents 1 today. Kmart shall complete its production of responsive electronically-stored information on 2 this topic by APRIL 15 AT NOON. Failure to do so may result in appropriate sanctions. 3 4 IT IS SO ORDERED. 5 6 Dated: April 11, 2013. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 7 8 9 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
