Order denying Plaintiff's Motion for a protective order (Related Doc # 220 ) regarding the deposition of her mother. Judge John R. Adams on 11/8/17.(L,J)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
-vsCITY OF AKRON, et al.,
) CASE NO. 5:16CV1829
) JUDGE JOHN R. ADAMS
On October 12, 2017, Plaintiff Alexis Dekany sought a protective order to prevent the
deposition of her mother. Doc. 220. Defendants have opposed the motion, and Dekany has
replied. The motion is DENIED.
Dekany contends that her mother has no relevant information that would require her to be
deposed. Moreover, Dekany contends that any information that her mother may have can be
obtained from other sources. However, the record in this matter reflects that Dekany was living
with her mother during the early stages of her relationship with Defendant Eric Paull. That fact
alone is sufficient to warrant the deposition.
The Court is mindful of Dekany’s assertions regarding the health of her mother.
Defendants, therefore, should make every effort to ensure that the deposition is conducted as
efficiently as possible. The motion for a protective order is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: November 8, 2017
