ORDER REGARDING PLAINTIFF'S
CONTINENTAL CASUALTY COMPANY,
Re: Dkt. No. 35
United States District Court
Northern District of California
The parties have submitted a joint letter regarding whether a second day of plaintiff Susan
Hunt’s deposition should be allowed. It should. Wide-ranging employment disputes, such as the
one alleged by Hunt, often require longer depositions of the plaintiff, the principal witness, than
the seven hour limit in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 30(d)(1).
Defendants may depose Hunt for an additional four hours. They should not repeat any
topics on which she has already been deposed unless they have received discovery that was not
produced at the time of the first day of her deposition that is relevant to an issue about which she
has already been questioned.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: September 25, 2014
