depositions in Omaha, Nebraska, scheduled for November 28-29,

protective order requesting that the depositions take place in
Dallas, rather than in Omaha (Filing No. 42).

Plaintiffs then filed a reply brief in support of their
motion, to which they attached three affidavits outlining the
difficulties they would have if required to attend depositions in

protective order, ruling quickly so that the parties could be on
notice where the depositions, scheduled for November 28 and 29,
2011, would take place.
The Court understands that the depositions did not take
place as scheduled.
In light of defendants’ objection that they
did not have an opportunity to respond to plaintiffs’ affidavits
attached to plaintiffs’ reply brief, the Court will grant
defendants’ motion to file a surreply brief in response to
plaintiffs’ reply brief and accompanying affidavits.

IT IS ORDERED:
The order granting plaintiffs’ motion for
protective order (Filing No. 48) is stayed; and
Defendants shall file a surreply brief with the
Court responding to plaintiffs’ reply brief and affidavits by
December 6, 2011.
DATED this 29th day of November, 2011.
