SiOnyx, LLC et al.v. Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. et al. (15-cv-13488).

Magistrate Judge Boal granted in part and denied in part SiOnyx’s motion to compel testimony and documents concerning Hamamatsu’s customer agreements. Hamamatsu had previously been compelled to produce sales agreements pertaining to the accused products. SiOnyx asserts that as a result of that production, it learned that Hamamatsu had actively negotiated with a major (sealed) customer of SiOnyx during the course of the litigation. SiOnyx sought additional depositions concerning the late-produced agreements as well as documents concerning the agreements. Judge Boal found SiOnyx’s requests overly broad, in that they covered not only the newly-discovered information but also topics that SiOnyx could have covered in prior depositions, but acknowledged that SiOnyx was entitled to some additional discovery as a result of the late production She ordered Hamamatsu to respond to depositions by written question pursuant to FRCP 31.
