Utha v. University of the Pacific

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


February 5, 2013

UTHA HELLMANN-BLUMBERG, PLAINTIFF,
v.
UNIVERSITY OF THE PACIFIC, A CALIFORNIA CORPORATION, DEFENDANT.

ORDER

On January 31, 2013, plaintiff's counsel filed a letter with the court, addressed to the undersigned, seeking "guidance" regarding an apparent dispute among counsel for the parties regarding the terms of a proposed stipulated protective order. It appears that counsel have been unable to agree to the terms of a proper protective order to govern discovery produced in this action despite the court's prior direction to them that they do so. Nonetheless, the court does not offer "guidance" to lawyers.

It would be unfortunate if counsel cannot resolve their differences over this routine matter so that they are able to submit a proposed stipulated protective order that complies with the Local Rules of this court.*fn1 However, if they are unable to do so, plaintiff's counsel may file a notice of motion and motion for a protective order. If he elects to pursue this course, plaintiff's counsel is directed to consult the Local Rules, specifically Local Rule 141.1(b) and Local Rule 251.*fn2 If this matter must be resolved by the court on a noticed motion and the court determines that either party was unreasonable in failing to reach a stipulated protective order as previously directed, sanctions will be imposed.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
