McCollum v. Thellman et al
MEMORANDUM TO COUNSEL. Signed on 1/8/18 by District Judge Howard F. Sachs. (Anderson, Christy)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
Case No. 17-00780-CV-W-HFS
MEMORANDUM TO COUNSEL
A dispute regarding certain discovery has been ongoing in this personal
injury matter, and counsel recently requested by joint motion (Doc. 55) leave to
file joint agreed orders under seal. (Doc. 55). Leave was granted, and the agreed
orders were to address (4) motions to compel filed by defendant, Scott Thellman,
as well as (10) motions to quash subpoenas filed by plaintiff.
Proposed orders have been submitted, but do not reflect the request in the
joint motion. For instance, one proposed order grants in part and denies in part
Thellman’s motion to compel directed to Research Medical Center; however, no
such motion has been filed. Another proposed order purports to grant similar relief
regarding St. Luke’s on the Plaza, but again, a motion to compel has not been filed.
Although the parties stated intention in the joint motion was to reflect an
agreement as to plaintiff’s (10) motions to quash, the proposed orders submitted do
not address all of those motions.
In view of this confusion, the court is unable to enter a coherent ruling, and
counsel are directed to review the relevant pleadings and submit proposed orders
as it relates to the relief initially sought in the joint motion within fourteen days
from the date of this order.
It is SO ORDERED
