In re Raymond Professional Group, 06-16748
Raymond Professional Group v. William A. Pope Company, 07-00639
Issued November 25, 2009
Judge Jack B. Schmetterer
Summary The Court denies debtor’s Amended Motion for Sanctions since no basis has been found under 28 U.S.C. §1927, but grants counter-plaintiff’s Motion to Compel Debtors to Pay Witness Deposition Fees in part. Counter-plaintiff is entitled to be paid fees associated with the deposition of Professor Hazard but not Professor Rapoport due to “manifest injustice” under Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(b)(4)(C)(i).
