IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 10, 2008
AVANTE INTERNATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, INC., PLAINTIFF,
HART INTERCIVIC, INC., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge
Before the court is Plaintiff's Motion to Compel Hart Intercivic, Inc.'s Production of Withheld Materials. (Doc. 61). Defendant filed a response at Doc. 67. Plaintiff filed a reply at Doc. 71.
The parties' lengthy pleadings can be distilled into two sentences, as follows. Plaintiff has served two sets of requests for production of documents. Defendant has withheld production of a large number of responsive documents because it does not want to produce the documents absent a protective order.
At the time plaintiff's motion was filed, defendant's Motion for Protective Order (Doc. 59) was pending. The Motion for Protective Order was denied. See, Doc. 77. Defendant filed an objection to the order denying the Motion for Protective Order. Chief Judge Herndon has now denied defendant's objection. See, Doc. 105.
Upon consideration and for good cause shown, Plaintiff's Motion to Compel Hart Intercivic, Inc.'s Production of Withheld Materials (Doc. 61) is GRANTED. Defendant shall produce the withheld documents by July 18, 2008.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
