1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 MICHAEL GAREDAKIS, et al., Case No. 14-cv-04799-PJH (DMR) Plaintiffs, 8 v. ORDER REGARDING DISCOVERY LETTERS 9 10 United States District Court Northern District of California 11 12 BRENTWOOD UNION SCHOOL DISTRICT, et al., Re: Dkt. Nos. 115, 124 Defendants. The court has reviewed the parties’ joint discovery letters dated October 30, 2015 [Docket 13 No. 115] and November 13, 2015. [Docket No. 124.] In the first letter, Plaintiffs move for a 14 protective order limiting the depositions of the minor Plaintiffs to one hour, and Defendants 15 propose a four-hour time limit. In the second letter, Plaintiffs move to quash a subpoena served 16 on Plaintiff’s consulting expert, Dr. Lynn Ponton. Defendants had served the subpoena because 17 Dr. Ponton had submitted a declaration in support of the one-hour deposition limit sought by the 18 minor Plaintiffs. 19 Having considered the parties’ arguments, the court rules as follows: 20 The minor plaintiffs may be deposed for two hours (breaks not included). The depositions 21 shall be subject to the other limitations already agreed upon by the parties. [Docket No. 115 at 1- 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2.] The two-hour limit is subject to extension by the court upon a specific showing of good cause. In reaching this ruling the court does not rely upon the declaration of Dr. Ponton. As such, it appears that the dispute regarding the subpoena of Dr. Ponton’s records is moot. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: November 19, 2015 ______________________________________ Donna M. Ryu United States Magistrate Judge
