Jeude v. Ste. Genevieve Memorial Hospital
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER re: 97 PRO SE MOTION filed by Plaintiff Todd Jeude - IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for depositions by written question [Doc. 97] is DENIED. Signed by Sr. District Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr on 11/13/2023. (JMC)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
STE. GENEVIEVE MEM’L HOSP., et al.,
Case No. 1:22cv151 SNLJ
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
On September 11, 2023, this Court held in abeyance plaintiff’s motion for
deposition by written question. In that motion [Doc. 97], plaintiff seeks to depose five
non-party witnesses through written question pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure
31. It also appears plaintiff seeks to subpoena a “formal complaint” that the jail may
have filed against defendant Dr. Sharrock. It was not clear whether plaintiff has sought a
copy of the “formal complaint” from the defendants. Defendants made a number of
objections to plaintiff’s motion, and this Court ordered the Clerk to send to plaintiff’s
new address a copy of defendants’ response memorandum [Doc. 101] and two blank
subpoena forms. This Court further ordered that plaintiff would have until October 11,
2023, by which to file a reply memorandum in support of his motion.
This Court learned that the Clerk had mistakenly sent the required documents to
plaintiff’s old address, but that the Clerk had then sent the documents to the correct
address upon learning of the mistake. There may have been a two-week delay, however,
in plaintiff’s receiving the Court’s order and related documents. Thus, although October
11 came and went without this Court receiving any communication from plaintiff, this
Court has waited four additional weeks to receive plaintiff’s reply. It appears that
plaintiff declines this Court’s offer to file anything further in support of his motion. As a
result, this Court will deny the motion.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff’s motion for depositions by written
question [Doc. 97] is DENIED.
Dated this 13th day of November, 2023.
STEPHEN N. LIMBAUGH, JR.
