1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 SAN JOSE DIVISION 7 RAJA KANNAN, 8 Plaintiff, 9 ORDER RE DISCOVERY DISPUTE RE PLAINTIFF'S RULE 30(B)(6) NOTICE, TOPIC 1 v. 10 APPLE INC., 11 United States District Court Northern District of California Case No. 17-cv-07305-EJD (VKD) Defendant. 12 Re: Dkt. No. 153, 158 13 Further to this Court’s order of October 22, 2019 (Dkt. No. 155), the Court has reviewed 14 15 the excerpts from the deposition of Moazam Raja identified by the parties and the statement filed 16 by defendant Apple Inc. (Dkt. No. 158). It appears from those materials that Apple does not any additional information about the 17 18 reasons Apple cancelled plaintiff Raja Kannan’s bonus and stock award during the period of time 19 just prior to his transfer to Mr. Kotni’s group. Accordingly, the Court denies Mr. Kannan’s 20 motion to compel further discovery on this point from Apple. With respect to Mr. Kannan’s request that Apple be precluded from offering any evidence 21 22 not yet produced regarding the reasons it cancelled this bonus and/or stock award and that the 23 Court determine that this event is evidence of discrimination against Mr. Kannan, Mr. Kannan 24 may only obtain such relief from the presiding judge in this action. However, as Apple has not 25 timely produced this information in discovery, Apple risks being precluded from using evidence 26 about the reasons it cancelled the bonus and/or stock award, at trial or for any other purpose. 27 /// 28 /// 1 2 IT IS SO ORDERED.
