INSIGHT GLOBAL, LLC, et al., Re: Dkt. No. 91 Defendants. 17 18 This court recently issued its order deciding Discovery Dispute Joint Report #2. The court 19 now addresses defendant’s so-styled Motion for Clarification of that order. Plaintiff opposes the 20 motion on both procedural and substantive grounds. The court doubts that the order needs 21 clarifying. However, to move things along: 22 1. The court intended to deny any production of telephone logs. 23 2. The order in question required production of text messages that “constitute, state, 24 discuss, mention, allude to, or reference” certain specified activities with respect to 25 employment at Beacon Hill or defendant. Guided by what seems to be nothing more 26 than wishful thinking, the defendant urges an interpretation that is NOT limited to text 27 messages that are cabined by the definition. As far as the court is concerned, the order 28 means what it says, and defendant’s proposed “clarification” would be a dramatic 1 departure from what the court intended. 2 3. The court intended to deny reopening any depositions. 3 SO ORDERED. 4 Dated: August 2, 2017 5 6 HOWARD R.
