SPENCER v. HUTCHESON ENTERPRISES INC
ORDER memorializing phone conference this date. Defendant is ordered to produce the documents in question not later than 11/3/2014. Ordered by U.S. District Judge HUGH LAWSON on 10/20/2014. (nbp)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
Civil Action No. 7:14-CV-32 (HL)
EZ TITLE PAWN, INC.,
On October 15, 2014, counsel for Plaintiff contacted the Court in regard to
an ongoing discovery dispute with Defendant. Plaintiff requested a telephone
conference to discuss Defendant’s refusal to produce documents Plaintiff
contends are responsive to certain requests to produce. This order memorializes
the proceedings conducted via telephone on October 20, 2014.
In response to Plaintiff’s Interrogatory Two, in which Plaintiff requested
Defendant provide factual detail for the cause of Plaintiff’s termination by
Defendant, Defendant identified a series of e-mails dated July 13, 2012, July 16,
2012, July 30, 2012, August 7, 2012, August 9, 2012, August 10, 2012, August
24, 2012, and August 28, 2012. According to Defendant, these e-mails do not
address specific conduct by Plaintiff but rather demonstrate the instructions
provided to Plaintiff about how to flag instances of fraud and generally provide
guidance on how better to conduct his job responsibilities.
While Defendant produced these e-mails to Plaintiff in response to
Plaintiff’s request to produce, Defendant did not produce the corresponding
operational reports Plaintiff asked Defendant to provide. Defendant argues that
the operational reports are irrelevant and unresponsive to the request. According
to Defendant, the e-mails and the operational reports referenced on the identified
dates do not demonstrate why Defendant terminated Plaintiff.
Upon consideration of the information provided by both parties, the Court
hereby orders Defendant to produce the documents in question by no later than
close of business on November 3, 2014. The Court will make a determination
about the relevance of the documents at the appropriate juncture.
SO ORDERED this 20th day of October, 2014.
