FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
NOTICE TO THE COURT REGARDING THE UNITED STATES' MOTION TO REQUIRE UPM-KYMMENE, OYJ TO MAKE AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES RESPONSIVE DOCUMENTS AND ONE DEPONENT LOCATED IN FINLAND
The United States originally provided the Court notice of its Motion to Require UPM-Kymmene Oyj to Make Available in the United States Responsive Documents and One Deponent Located in Finland, requesting that it be presented before the Court on Tuesday, May 13, 2003.
The United States hereby notifies the Court that on May 11, 2003, defendant UPM-Kymmene Oyj ("UPM") agreed to make its President and Chief Executive Officer, Juha Niemela, available in Washington, D.C., on May 19, 2003, for a deposition originally noticed for May 16, 2003, while no longer insisting on unrelated conditions that plaintiff considered unacceptable. This agreement renders moot the portion of plaintiff's above-referenced motion that requested the Court to order UPM to make Mr. Niemela available for a deposition. A revised proposed order is attached to this notice.
The United States also notifies the Court that with UPM's consent, it has re-scheduled presentation of the above-referenced motion before the Court to Thursday, May 15, at 10:15 am, or as soon thereafter as counsel may be heard, to discuss the remaining issue pertaining to UPM's refusal to produce responsive documents from Finland.
Dated: May 12, 2003
