IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA DENISE RILEY, : : : : : : : Plaintiff, v. ST. MARY MEDICAL CENTER, Defendant. CIVIL ACTION No. 13-7205 ORDER This 6th day of October, 2015, for the reasons stated in the foregoing Memorandum Opinion, Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment is GRANTED. Upon consideration of Defendant’s Motion to Strike and for Sanctions, the Motion to Strike is DENIED AS MOOT, and the Motion for Sanctions is DENIED. 1 /s/ Gerald Austin McHugh United States District Court Judge 1 Although I have not issued sanctions, the conduct of Plaintiff’s counsel certainly reaches the outer boundary of permissible advocacy, and the Court takes a particularly dim view of the contradictory post-deposition Certifications filed. Counsel and his firm would be well advised to avoid such behavior in the future. 1
