Kesler Associates, Inc. v. Wellman Plastics Recycling, LLC
ORDER Granting in Part Defendant's Objections 58 and Overruling Plaintiff's Objections 56 to the Magistrate Judge's Order 55 . Signed by District Judge Denise Page Hood. (LSau)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
KESLER ASSOCIATES, INC.,
Case No. 10-CV-13390
HONORABLE DENISE PAGE HOOD
WELLMAN PLASTICS RECYCLING, LLC,
ORDER GRANTING IN PART DEFENDANT’S OBJECTIONS [DKT #58] AND
OVERRULING PLAINTIFF’S OBJECTIONS [DKT #56] TO THE MAGISTRATE
JUDGE’S ORDER [DKT #55]
The Court referred Defendant’s Motion to Quash and Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel to the
Magistrate Judge. On October 23, 2012, Magistrate Judge Paul J. Komives granted in part and
denied in part Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel and granted Defendant’s Motion to Quash Subpoenas.
Specifically, he ordered that Defendant produce summary documents identifying certain
information, including specification numbers, from April 2011 through December 2011. Plaintiff
and Defendant filed objections to the Magistrate Judge’s Order. Defendant argues that it should not
be required to include specification numbers because such information was not provided in the past
and would require significant expense and time. Plaintiff asks the Court to require Defendant to
provide discovery, essentially, until the date of trial and beyond.
A party must file objections to a magistrate judge’s order on a non-dispositive matter within
fourteen (14) days of being served a copy of the order. Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(a). The Court “may
reconsider any pretrial matter . . . where it is shown that the [magistrate judge’s] order is clearly
erroneous or contrary to law.” 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(a)(A); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(a). The Court has
reviewed the Magistrate Judge’s order and the parties’ objections and finds the Magistrate Judge’s
Order neither clearly erroneous nor contrary to law. However, the Court will not require Defendant
to provide specification numbers given that the information was not provided in the past.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
