UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 6, 2010
ENEDINO DURAN GOMEZ, ET AL., PLAINTIFF,
ROSSI CONCRETE, INC., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Barry Ted Moskowitz United States District Judge
ORDER RE PLAINTIFFS' REQUEST THAT DEFENDANTS LODGE DEPOSITION TRANSCRIPTS
Plaintiffs have filed a request that Defendants lodge the original deposition transcripts of John Lowery and Aryella Stickney with the Court [Doc. 68]. They make their request under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 32(a)(6). That rule says that "[i]f a party offers in evidence only part of a deposition, an adverse party may require the offeror to introduce other parts that in fairness should be considered with the part introduced, and any party may itself introduce any other parts." Fed. R. Civ. P. 32(a)(6). The rule, however, does not support Plaintiffs' request.
Plaintiffs are the ones who offered the Lowery and Stickney depositions into evidence. And they are the ones who offered "only part of a deposition." Id. Moreover, the rule does not require entire, original deposition transcripts to be lodged with the Court. If Plaintiffs wanted the Court to consider other parts of the deposition, they should have included those parts in their motion.
The request is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
