FACEBOOK, INC., et al., Defendants. ORDER RE FACEBOOK’S REQUEST FOR REISSUANCE OF AMENDED LETTERS ROGATORY Re: Dkt. No. 245 17 18 Facebook requests that this court re-issue amended letters rogatory as to 4 witnesses in 19 England. Having reviewed the request, this court is prepared to grant Facebook’s request, but 20 notes the following: 21 1. Section VII.A. of each letter states that written evidence and documents are to be sent 22 to this court. The court has modified this section in each letter to show the court’s full 23 street address. 24 2. Each letter references several exhibits, but Facebook has not provided copies of those 25 exhibits to this court. Nor has Facebook clearly identified (i.e., by docket number) 26 what documents it has in mind, and this court is not going to guess. To the extent 27 Facebook wants the letters to be sent along with the referenced exhibits, it shall provide 28 those exhibits to the court forthwith. 1 3. With respect to the redacted versions of the Vaney and Batchelor letters, this court 2 assumes that Facebook does not want those versions to be sent to England, since 3 Facebook does not specifically say so. Accordingly, this court will sign and file the 4 redacted versions as requested, but will not forward them to the court in England. 5 SO ORDERED. 6 Dated: April 17, 2017 7 8 HOWARD R.
