United States District Court, N.D. California

JAMES CORNN, et al., Plaintiffs,
UNITED PARCEL SERVICE, INC., et al., Defendants.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: THELTON HENDERSON, Senior District Judge
ORDER RE: DISCOVERY
This order re-confirms the Court's April 6, 2004 appointment of
Edward Swanson, Esq., of Swanson & McNamara, LLP, as Special
Master to supervise and preside over all remaining discovery in
this case. All provisions of the Court's April 6, 2004 order
shall remain in effect, except that the Special Master's hourly
fee has increased from $300.00 to $350.00.
The parties' immediate priority, and that of the Special Master
should the parties need his assistance, shall be to develop a
discovery plan relating to Defendant United Parcel Service's
intended motions for summary judgment and class decertification.
This shall include establishing the scope of absent class member
discovery. As the Court informed the parties at the December 5,
2005 case management conference, the Special Master shall have
the authority to exercise his discretion in granting appropriate
discovery beyond the number of depositions and interrogatories
provided for by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
