USA v. RaPower-3 et al
MEMORANDUM DECISION denying #577 Motion for Protective Order as to Glenda Johnson. Signed by Judge David Nuffer on 3/6/19 (alt)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF UTAH
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
DENYING GLENDA JOHNSON’S
MOTION FOR PROTECTIVE ORDER
Case No. 2:15-cv-00828-DN
RAPOWER-3, LLC, et al.,
District Judge David Nuffer
Nonparty Glenda Johnson filed a motion (the “Motion”) for a protective order “to reset
the deposition scheduled [by the Receiver] for February 20, and to define the permitted scope of
inquiry.” 1 Johnson’s stated grounds for the Motion are that any information she may have is
protected by the spousal communications privilege.2 Because the Receiver has disavowed any
intention to ask Johnson about communications that may fall within the scope of this privilege, 2
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Motion is DENIED. Unless the Receiver
otherwise agrees in writing, Johnson must appear for her deposition by no later than March 22,
2019. Any objection or claim of privilege that she may have to a specific question during the
deposition may be asserted at the proper time at the deposition in response to such question. 3
Signed March 6, 2019.
