MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, et al.,
ORDER RE MOTION TO COMPEL
APPELLANT TO PRODUCE
TRANSCRIPTS AND SANCTIONS
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Defendant-appellees move for an order compelling plaintiff-appellants to produce
requisite transcripts of the proceedings for their appeal (Dkt. No. 113). See FRAP 10; C.R. 10-
3.1. When ruling on a motion to compel an appellant to order transcripts, this order considers
if the requested transcripts are necessary to the appeal or necessary for an informed analysis of
the parties’ positions, and other, relevant externalities, such as whether the party is pro se. See
OneWest Bank, FSB v. Farrar, 19 F. Supp. 3d 1050, 1052–53 (D. Haw. 2014); C.R. 30-1.1.
Our court of appeals is in a better position to dictate the resolution of this procedural
issue: it has already denied defendants’ motion to dismiss the appeal for failure to prosecute;
there are open questions as to whether plaintiffs have representation in the appellate case (they
remain pro se in this Court); and if this order granted defendants’ broad request for transcripts,
plaintiffs (who have limited funds) may incur unnecessary expenses acquiring transcripts
unnecessary for the appeal. The motion at the district court is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
