Robbins v. Flowers Foods, Inc. et al
ORDER denying 43 Motion for local counsel to be excused from all depositions. Signed by Magistrate Judge Jane M. Virden on 12/6/17. (ncb)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
BRADLEY ROBBINS, Individually,
and on behalf of himself and
all others similarly situated,
FLOWERS FOODS, INC., and FLOWERS
BAKING CO. OF BATESVILLE, LLC,
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR PARTIAL RELIEF FROM LOCAL
RULES REQUIRING LOCAL COUNSEL TO ATTEND PROCEEDINGS
This matter comes before the Court upon the motion for partial relief from the local rules
that require local counsel to attend all proceedings . Upon due consideration, the Court finds
the motion is not well taken and should be denied.
Specifically, counsel’s request to be excused from all depositions is overly broad and
unsupported by good cause. Counsel cites no health-related or other valid reason to justify
suspension of the local rules in such a blanket fashion. Accordingly, the instant motion is
SO ORDERED this, the 6th day of December, 2017.
