THE HONORABLE VALERIE P. COOKE, U.S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
REPORTER: NONE APPEARING
COUNSEL FOR PLAINTIFF(S): NONE APPEARING
COUNSEL FOR DEFENDANT(S): NONE APPEARING
MINUTE ORDER IN CHAMBERS:
Defendant, Interlink Products International, Inc. (“Interlink”), has filed an emergency
motion for an order staying any discovery in connection with eight third-party document
subpoenas pending resolution of Interlink’s motion for a protective order (ECF No. 51) and/or
motion to stay discovery (ECF No. 50).
Between June 20 and June 23, 2017, plaintiffs served identical document subpoenas
(“subpoenas”) to eight separate entities that are either customers of Interlink or with which
Interlink has a business relationship. See motion for protective order (ECF No. 51) at Exhibits 1,
7 & 8. Defendant claims the subpoenas are overbroad and seek information, much of which is
competitively sensitive, that is irrelevant to the case. See motion for protective order, at passim.
The deadline to respond to the subpoenas duces tecum is July 13, 2017.
The court agrees a stay is necessary to preserve the status quo pending a resolution of
Interlink’s motions. Accordingly, the emergency motion to stay compliance with subpoenas
(ECF No. 52) is GRANTED as follows:
Compliance with the subpoenas is STAYED until further order of the court;
Plaintiffs shall immediately serve a copy of this order on all recipients of the
Plaintiffs shall file a proof of service of this order on each subpoena recipient.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
