ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANTS'
REQUEST FOR VIDEO CONFERENCING (Doc. 32)
On February 15, 2011, Defendants requested, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 30(b)(4), to be allowed to conduct the deposition of Plaintiff via video conference. Defendants explain that the round trip to Kern Valley State Prison, the institution of Plaintiff's incarceration, is approximately 520 miles from the Attorney General's Office in Sacramento and would take four hours in transit time.
Good cause appearing, Defendants' February 15, 2011 request for video conferencing (Doc. 32) is GRANTED. However, nothing in this order shall be interpreted as requiring the institution in which Plaintiff is housed to obtain video conferencing equipment if it is not already available.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
