R. JORDT, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dennis L. Beck United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER GRANTING REQUEST TO CONDUCT DEPOSITION VIA VIDEO CONFERENCE (DOC. 21)
Plaintiff Dorian M. Aquino ("Plaintiff") is a California state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On June 15, 2011, Defendants filed a request to conduct Plaintiff's deposition via video conference. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 30(b)(4). Defendants contend that Plaintiff is incarcerated at California State Prison-Corcoran, in Corcoran, California, and a deposition via video conference would save on unnecessary travel expenses and is in the interest of judicial economy. Defendants' counsel is in Sacramento, California.
The Court finds Defendants' request reasonable. Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED that Defendants' request to conduct Plaintiff's deposition via video conference is GRANTED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
