NO. 118 9 CROWDFLOWER, INC., et al., 10 Defendants. _____________________________________/ 12 For the Northern District of California UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 11 13 Before the Court is the parties’ joint discovery dispute letter, filed June 14, 2013. Dkt. No. 14 118. The letter concerns CrowdFlower’s request that Plaintiff be compelled to appear for deposition 15 for an additional two hours and answer questions pertaining to work performed for other Requesters 16 and employers Id. at 6. For the reasons stated in the Court’s April 11, 2013 Order, Plaintiff’s other 17 employment or receipt of other income is irrelevant to the question of whether Plaintiff was 18 Defendants’ employee or whether he was an independent contractor. See Order at 2:19-3:7, Dkt. 19 No. 85. Accordingly, Defendants’ request is DENIED because it is not likely to lead to the 20 discovery of relevant evidence. 21 IT IS SO ORDERED 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Dated: June 24, 2013 _______________________________ Maria-Elena James United States Magistrate Judge
