Moreira-Brown v. Las Vegas Review Journal Inc. et al
ORDER that 23 Motion to Compel is DENIED without prejudice. Signed by Magistrate Judge Nancy J. Koppe on 2/10/17. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - MMM)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL, INC., et al.,
Case No. 2:16-cv-02002-JAD-NJK
(Docket No. 23)
Pending before the Court is Plaintiff’s motion to compel. Docket No. 23. Defendants Las
Vegas Review Journal, Inc. and Thevenot filed a response. Docket No. 24. No reply was filed. See
Docket. This action arises out of an article that Defendant Las Vegas Review Journal, Inc.
published, which discusses the allegations of a confidential source who is the Jane Doe defendant
in this action. See id. Plaintiff asks the Court to compel Defendants Las Vegas Review Journal, Inc.
and Thevenot to “disclose to the Plaintiff such pertinent information as would permit the Plaintiff
to identify the [Jane Doe] defendant and serve her.” Id. at 8.
Plaintiff does not appear to have made any effort to meet and confer with Defendants about
this issue, as the Local Rules require. See Docket No. 23; Docket No. 24 at 2; LR 26-7(c).
Accordingly, the Court DENIES Plaintiff’s motion to compel, Docket No. 23, without prejudice.
Additionally, Plaintiff’s motion fails to cite relevant rules or case law. See id. at 8. Any renewed
motion may only be filed after a meet and confer that complies with the Local Rules, and must
contain a meaningful discussion of relevant standards.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: February 10, 2017
