IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 28, 2011
BRANDON KRESS, ET AL., PLAINTIFF,
PRICE WATERHOUSE COOPERS LLP, DEFENDANT(S).
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows U.S. Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff filed a discovery motion on 02/23/2011 set for hearing on March 17 , 2011@ 10:00 a.m. In with the seven days specified by E.D. Cal. L.R. 251, the joint statement shall be filed in no later seven days before the scheduled hearing. Pursuant to E.D. Cal. L.R. 133(f), if the joint statement is more than 25 pages, or the attachments are longer than 50 pages, the copy shall be hand delivered or sent by overnight mail to chambers on the day following the day of electronic filing. The filing deadline, accordingly, will be March 10 , 2011.
The dispute may be organized by category, with specific discovery items attached, if appropriate, as an exhibit. For each disputed category or individual item, include: (1) the specific disputed discovery category or item; (2) the response; (3) the moving party's position; and (4) the opposition. E.D.Cal. L.R. 37-251(c)(3). Do not file separate briefing. Id.
Privilege objections must comply with Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(b)(5). Except in extraordinary circumstances, claiming privilege may not submit a post-hearing privilege log. The failure properly to support a privilege objection with a privilege log may be deemed to waive it.
The moving party is responsible for filing the joint statement. The opposing party nevertheless must draft and submit its portion. Failure of either party to use best efforts to ensure timely filing will be cause
