UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 30, 2012
JUNE ELAINE SYLVESTER, PLAINTIFF,
COUNTY OF DEL NORTE, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Nandor J. Vadas Judge
[PROPOSED] ORDER AWARDING TASER INTERNATIONAL, INC. COSTS AND ATTORNEYS' FEES IN CONNECTION WITH PLAINTIFF'S REQUEST FOR A CONTINUANCE OF DEPOSITION
On Monday, July 16, 2012, the Court granted a request from counsel for plaintiff June Sylvester for a telephonic hearing concerning a continuance of her deposition noticed by 18 agreement for Tuesday, July 17, 2012. Defendants TASER International, Inc. ("TASER") and 19
The County of Del Norte objected to the continuance on grounds plaintiff's deposition had been 20 previously noticed several times and had been rescheduled by agreement for July 17 during a 21
June 8, 2012, telephone conference pursuant to this Court's order directing the parties to meet 22 and confer. The July 17 deposition date had been re-confirmed in an email from plaintiff's 23 counsel on June 11, 2012. 24
Having considered the arguments of counsel, the Court finds that plaintiff's delay in 25 requesting another deposition continuance caused TASER to incur costs and attorneys' fees 26 unnecessarily. Accordingly, good cause exists for this Court to order plaintiff June Sylvester and/or her counsel to pay defendant TASER costs of $668.46 and reasonable attorneys' fees in 2 the amount of $456 for a total of $1,124.46. Payment shall be made directly to TASER within ten (10) days of the date of this Order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
