IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 10, 2013
LONNIE G. SCHMIDT, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
Pending before the court is a motion to quash subpoena to non-parties George Adams, III and George Adams & Company, filed by non-party and former defendant Warfield and noticed for hearing on June 20, 2013. According to Warfield*fn1 , the subpoena was served on the non-parties on April 26, 2013. The discovery cutoff in this case was April 24, 2013. (Dkt. no. 80.) As the undersigned stated in a prior order with respect to previous subpoenas issued by plaintiffs, plaintiffs should have requested an extension to the discovery cutoff prior to the April 24th deadline if they had a reasonable excuse for waiting so long to issue the subpoenas.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that:
1. The subpoena issued to George Adams III and George Adams & Company on April 26, 2013, will not be enforced; and
2. The motion to quash, filed May 7, 2013, by Lawrence Warfield, (dkt. no. 102), is denied as moot and vacated from the calendar for June 20, 2013.
3. The Clerk shall serve Lawrence Warfield at the address indicated in his motion.
