Parties stipulate to legal briefing schedule contesting Matt Hume deposition

July 31, 2017

The Motion to Compel the deposition of Matt Hume and have him produce documents has been given dates for legal briefing.  But, Plaintiffs seeking the deposition will also face a Motion to Quash from Hume’s attorneys and OneFC.

The parties in the discovery dispute agreed to a briefing schedule.  Originally, the Motion to Compel was to be submitted on July 28th.  However, Hume’s attorneys also filed a Motion to Quash the Deposition as they believe that the deposition notice and subpoena are not valid despite the Nevada court ruling.  With a looming discovery deadline and the parties having dueling motions, they came together to stipulate to when the oppositions and replies would take place.

The briefs will be due July 31st with the reply briefs due August 4th.  It does not appear that there will be oral argument although its not clear.

Plaintiffs are seeking over $21,000 (and perhaps more) in legal fees in addition to commanding Hume sit for a deposition and produce documents.  Hume’s attorneys are seeking to invalidate the subpoena and request for documents.  Hume’s attorneys had offered him for deposition on a limited number of documents.  But, Plaintiffs did not agree to the limited scope.

Payout Perspective:

One would assume that the Court will have a decision shortly after submission of the briefs since the discovery deadline for fact discovery was/is today, July 31st.  Expect an order which will allow the deposition with some disclaimers.  MMA Payout will keep you updated.
