UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
Barbara S. Jones
Having carefully reviewed the parties' submissions relating to discovery and scheduling of the above-entitled action, and having reviewed the relevant law, the Court ORDERS
The parties are directed to appear before the Court for a status and scheduling conference on June 25, 1999, at 4:00 p.m., in Courtroom 905, the United States Courthouse, 40 Foley Square, New York, New York 10007.
New York, New York
1 The Court does not see any justification for requiring the Government to pay the cost of creating the CD-Rom documents, as opposed to paying the cost of copying them, given that the defendants created the documents voluntarily and not in order to comply with a document demand from the Government. Moreover, to the extent that the CD-Rom documents constitute attorney work product, the Court concludes that the Government has shown that their substantial equivalent is not available without undue burden. This conclusion is based, in part, on the tight trial schedule and the need for expeditious conclusion of discovery.
