UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 26, 2011
NORTHROP GRUMMAN CORPORATION, PLAINTIFF,
FACTORY MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dean D. Pregerson United States District Judge
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION OF MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S ORDERS ON MOTIONS TO COMPEL [Docket No. 344]
Presently before the court is Plaintiff Northrop Grumman Corporation's Motion for Reconsideration of Magistrate Judge Abrams' August 8 and September 12, 2011 Orders Regarding Plaintiff's Motion to Compel Information Concerning Adjustment of Claim. A district court must uphold a magistrate judge's pretrial order unless it is "clearly erroneous or contrary to law." See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(A); Fed. R. Civ. P 72(a). Here, the court finds no factual or legal error at all in the Magistrate Judge's orders permitting Plaintiff to depose Defendant's outside consultants, but limiting those depositions to "facts only." (Order Re: Pl.'s Req. for Clarification, Docket No. 343, at 2:17.) The court therefore DENIES Plaintiff's Motion for Reconsideration.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
