Case No. 16-cv-01077-MEJ
ORDER RE: JOINT DISCOVERY
Re: Dkt. No. 119
WEST CONTRA COSTA UNIFIED
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Defendant has shown good cause for deposing Rhem Bell after the close of discovery. See
Jt. Ltr. Br., Dkt. No. 119. Plaintiff does not raise any objections, and does not argue (much less
show) he will be prejudiced if Defendant is allowed to depose the witness. See id. Before
scheduling Mr. Bell’s deposition, Defendant and Plaintiff shall confer and confirm that Plaintiff
intends to attend the deposition. If Plaintiff so confirms, Defendant shall schedule the deposition
for a time during which Plaintiff can attend (after 1:30 p.m. on Monday-Friday). If, after
confirming his intention to attend the deposition, Plaintiff does not do so, Defendant shall notify
the Court and the Court may order Plaintiff to reimburse Defendant for any time its counsel spent
scheduling the deposition at Plaintiff’s convenience or waiting for Plaintiff to appear.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
