ORDER RE DISCOVERY
UNITED AIRLINES, INC.,
No. C 19-00396 WHA
The Court has reviewed defendant United Airlines, Inc.’s discovery letter brief dated
October 4 (Dkt. No. 34). United takes issue with plaintiff Theodore Liaw’s discovery responses
served on September 30 (id. at 1). Specifically, it contends that Liaw’s interrogatory responses
are deficient and that he failed to produce any documents. United requests an “expedited”
consideration of its discovery letter due to an “impending deadline of October 7, 2019 to file a
motion to compel in this action” (ibid.). But United does not specify what the motion to compel
is related to, how the alleged discovery response deficiencies affect said motion, or even the
exact relief it seeks with this letter. Nor did the parties meet and confer before United filed the
instant letter (id. at 2). United thus has not sufficiently shown the need for an expedited
consideration of the instant letter. Accordingly, United’s request is DENIED without prejudice
to a future letter brief filed after the parties have met and conferred in good faith.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: October 4, 2019.
