Judge Forrest authorizes depositions of declarants to support defendant’s motion for summary judgment

JobDiva, Inc. v. Monster Worldwide, Inc.

Case Number: 1:13-cv-08229-KBF

Following defendant Monster’s filing of a motion for summary judgment, the patentee provided declarations by two expert witnesses in opposition. Monster noticed depositions of these experts, but the patentee moved for a protective order, asking the court to bar the depositions. Judge Forrest said that patentee’s filing of declarations opened the door for the depositions, and ordered them to proceed immediately.
