Al Ghadeer Meat Market Inc et al v. United States of America, Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service
ORDER Adopting Discovery Master's 29 Report and Recommendation and Granting 24 Motion for Protective Order. Signed by District Judge Stephen J. Murphy, III. (DPar)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
AL GHADEER MEAT MARKET
INC, and NADIA SAAD,
Case No. 2:19-cv-12131
HONORABLE STEPHEN J. MURPHY, III
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
AGRICULTURE, FOOD AND
ORDER ADOPTING DISCOVERY MASTER'S REPORT  AND
GRANTING DEFENDANT'S MOTION FOR PROTECTIVE ORDER 
The Court referred Defendant's motion for a protective order to Discovery
Master Thomas M. Schehr. ECF 26. In the motion, Defendant sought "to prevent
disclosure of the names of the confidential sources who conducted undercover
transactions at Al Ghadeer." ECF 24, PgID 414. Mr. Schehr recommended that the
Court grant the motion because "Defendant has properly asserted the informant's
privilege and has established a strong public interest in nondisclosure of the
confidential sources." ECF 29, PgID 496–97.
The parties did not object to the Report. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 53(f)(2). The Report
is well reasoned and supported by the record and the applicable law. See Fed. R. Civ.
P. 53(f)(3)–(4). The Court agrees with Mr. Schehr's recommendations and adopts the
Report's reasoning to support the Court's rulings.
WHEREFORE, it is hereby ORDERED that the report and recommendation
 is ADOPTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendant's motion for a protective order
 is GRANTED.
Dated: July 15, 2021
