No. C11-80152MISC EJD (HRL)
NOT FOR CITATION
ORDER SETTING TELEPHONIC HEARING RE DISCOVERY DISPUTE
This court received an "Emergency Motion" for relief filed by plaintiff Florists' Transworld Delivery (FTD) concerning a discovery dispute over the Bay Area location for the deposition of non-party Don Hotton. Specifically, the parties disagree whether Hotton's deposition should take place in San Jose (per FTD's subpoena) or in Walnut Creek or Oakland (per Hotton's request).
Frankly, this strikes the court as a dispute that the parties should have been able to resolve on their own. Nevertheless, because the parties apparently have not resolved their differences, this court will discuss the matter with FTD and Hotton in a telephone conference today, January 13, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. Counsel for FTD and Hotton shall initiate the call to the court via CourtCall, 866-582-6878.
