and Jane Doe,
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiffs’ Motion to Quash Couch Defendants’
Deposition Notices and Subpoenas to Certain of Plaintiffs’ Trial Counsel, ECF No. 306. In
order to help rule on the Motion, on January 8, 2015, this Court ordered Brent P. Stewart, Esq.
and Ann McCrowey Mickle, Esq., counsel of record in the present action, to submit ex parte
for in camera review affidavits answering two questions proffered by the Court. Based on the
responses provided by Stewart and Mickle, the Court holds that the subpoenas served upon,
and depositions noticed to, Stewart and Mickle would serve no useful purpose in the present
controversy. Therefore, the Court grants Plaintiffs’ Motion to Quash Couch Defendants’
Deposition Notices and Subpoenas to Certain of Plaintiffs’ Trial Counsel, ECF No. 306.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
