1 2 3 4 5 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 6 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 7 8 9 THEODORE LIAW, 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 13 Plaintiff, v. ORDER RE DISCOVERY LETTER DATED OCTOBER 4 UNITED AIRLINES, INC., Defendant. 14 15 No. C 19-00396 WHA / The Court has reviewed defendant United Airlines, Inc.’s discovery letter brief dated 16 October 4 (Dkt. No. 34). United takes issue with plaintiff Theodore Liaw’s discovery responses 17 served on September 30 (id. at 1). Specifically, it contends that Liaw’s interrogatory responses 18 are deficient and that he failed to produce any documents. United requests an “expedited” 19 consideration of its discovery letter due to an “impending deadline of October 7, 2019 to file a 20 motion to compel in this action” (ibid.). But United does not specify what the motion to compel 21 is related to, how the alleged discovery response deficiencies affect said motion, or even the 22 exact relief it seeks with this letter. Nor did the parties meet and confer before United filed the 23 instant letter (id. at 2). United thus has not sufficiently shown the need for an expedited 24 consideration of the instant letter. Accordingly, United’s request is DENIED without prejudice 25 to a future letter brief filed after the parties have met and conferred in good faith. 26 27 28 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: October 4, 2019. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
