Form 26-13 Motion to Stay Discovery Proceedings and for Continuance of
Action



[F.R.C.P. 26(b)(3)]



[Title of Court and Cause]



Defendant [name] moves for an order staying further discovery
proceedings with respect to Plaintiff [name] and to continue this cause from
its present setting of date, and as ground states:



1. On [date], Plaintiff filed its interrogatories directed to
Defendant.



2. On [date], Defendant responded to the interrogatories by asserting
her right against self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment to the
Constitution of the United States.



3. Defendant has been tried and convicted in criminal proceedings in
[title, docket, and court].



4. In the criminal proceedings Defendant declined to testify pursuant
to the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.



5. The conviction of Defendant has been appealed to the [court and
docket no.] where the appeal is now pending.



6. Defendant's Counsel anticipates that the cases will be set for oral
argument sometime in [date].



7. Defendant's Counsel believes the appeals to be meritorious and has
reasonable grounds to believe that the cases will be reversed and dismissed
or remanded for a new trial.



8. The subject matter of the criminal case is substantially the same
as the subject matter of these civil proceedings and of the interrogatories
propounded to Defendant by Plaintiff.



9. These civil proceedings were instituted by Plaintiff and after
these proceedings were instituted the Defendant was advised by counsel that
its affirmative defenses and counterclaims are of the nature and character
which are required to be interposed in this action or forever forfeited.
Defendant has been advised by counsel that the counterclaims and affirmative
defenses are meritorious.



10. If Defendant is compelled to answer the interrogatories in this
case prior to final disposition of all criminal proceedings against her, she
will thereby be compelled to testify against herself in violation of her
right against self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment of the
Constitution of the United States.



11. If Defendant fails to answer she will thereby forfeit her rights
to assert her defenses in this case and pursue her counterclaim against
Plaintiff, if the court strikes these defenses and counterclaim thereby
subjecting Defendant to drastic and severe penalties for invoking his
constitutional rights.



12. If Defendant is required to go to trial in this case prior to a
final disposition of her criminal case, she will be unable to present her
defenses and support her allegations in this case for the reasons that a
substantial portion of the records and documentary information necessary for
these purposes have been subpoenaed, removed, and held by the United States
Department of Justice which has been investigating the matters involved in
these proceedings since and prior to the inception of the suit filed in this
case by Plaintiff. As a result, such records as defendants do have available
have been disorganized and scattered so that defendants cannot not possibly
properly prepare for trial by [date], and while the criminal proceedings are
pending.



13. Attached to this motion are affidavits [or declarations] in
support of this motion.



14. By reason of the foregoing the Defendant is unable to proceed any
further in discovery matters in this case or in the preparation for trial.



WHEREFORE, Defendant prays (1) that the Court enter its order staying
further discovery matters, and (2) continue this case from its present
setting of [date], so as to permit the Defendant her rights to a fair trial
on the merits.

Form 26-19 Motion for Protective Order Limiting Scope of Deposition Upon
Oral Examination



[F.R.C.P. 26(b)(3)]



[Title of Court and Cause]



Plaintiff [or defendant] moves that the scope of the examination of
the witness [name], notice of the taking of whose deposition on [date] at
[time] was served upon the attorneys for the plaintiff [or defendant], be
limited as set forth below, and in support of the motion states.



1. On date, attorneys for the plaintiff [or defendant] received the
following notice from the attorneys for defendant [or plaintiff]:



Please take notice that on [date], at [time], we shall take the
deposition of [name] before [name] in [place], pursuant to the provisions of
the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, at which time and place you may appear
if you see fit.



2. The witness [name] is in the employ of the plaintiff [or defendant]
and in charge of its insurance matters. Plaintiff [or defendant] believes
that the attorneys for the defendant [or plaintiff] propose to examine
[name] with respect to such insurance matters in an attempt to elicit
information likely to assist defendant in business dealings with third
persons, to the plaintiff's disadvantages, all of which more clearly appears
in the affidavits attached as Exhibits A and B.



3. An examination of the witness [name] with respect to such matters,
or any of them, would be immaterial and irrelevant to the subject matter
involved in the pending action and not pertinent or material to any defense
of the defendant [or plaintiff].



Wherefore, plaintiff [or defendant] moves that this court enter an
order limiting the cope of the examination of [name] so as to exclude any
examination with respect to any of the matters set forth in paragraph 2 of
this motion, and postponing the time set for the taking of the deposition
until after the hearing and disposal of the motion.

Form 29-5 Stipulated Protective Order Regarding Confidentiality



[F.R.C.P. 26(c) and 29]



[Title of Court and Cause]



Subject to the Court's approval, the parties tin this action stipulate
to the following protective order.



1. In connection with discovery proceedings in this action, the
parties may designate any document, thing, testimony or other information
derived therefrom as "Confidential." For purposes of this Stipulated
Protective Order, "confidential information" is information that has not
been made public and that concerns or relates to the processes, operations,
type of work, or apparatus, or to the production, sales, shipments,
purchases, transfers, identification of customers, inventories, amount or
source of any income, profits, losses or expenditures, of any persons, firm,
partnership, corporation, or any other organization, the disclosure of which
information may have the effect of causing harm to the competitive position
of the person or entity from which the information was obtained.



2. Confidential documents shall be designated by stamping
"CONFIDENTIAL" on the copies of the document produced. Stamping
"CONFIDENTIAL" on the cover of any multipage document shall designate all
pages of the document as confidential, unless otherwise indicated by the
producing party.



3. Testimony taken at a deposition, conference, hearing or other
proceeding may be designated as confidential by making a statement to that
effect on the record at the deposition or other proceeding. Arrangements
shall be made with the court reporter taking and transcribing the proceeding
to separately bind such portion of the transcript containing information
designated as confidential and to label such portion appropriately.

4. Material designated as confidential under this Order, the
information contained in the material, and any summaries, copies, abstracts,
or other documents derived in whole or in part from material designated as
confidential shall be used only for the purpose of the prosecution, defense,
or settlement of this action and for no other purpose.



5. Confidential material produced pursuant to this Order may be
disclosed or made available only to the Court, counsel for a party
(including the paralegal, clerical, and secretarial staff employed by
counsel), and "qualified persons" designated below:



a. A party, or an officer, director, or employee of a party deemed
necessary by counsel to aid in the prosecution, defense, or settlement of
this action.



b. Experts or consultants (together with their clerical staff)
retained by counsel to assist in the prosecution, defense, or settlement of
this action.



c. Court reporters employed in this action.



d. A witness at any deposition or other proceeding in this action.



e. Any other person as to whom the parties in writing agree.



Before receiving any confidential material, each "qualified person" shall be
provided with a copy of this Order and shall execute a nondisclosure
agreement in the form of Attachment A, a copy of which shall be promptly
provided to counsel for each other party and for the parties.



6. Depositions shall be taken only in the presence of qualified
persons.



7. The parties may further designate certain discovery material or
testimony of a highly confidential and/or proprietary nature as
"CONFIDENTIAL-ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY" in the manner described in paragraphs 2
and 3 above. Attorneys' Eyes Only Material and the information contained
therein shall be disclosed only to the Court, to counsel for the parties
(including the paralegal, clerical, and secretarial staff of counsel), and
to the "qualified persons" listed in subparagraphs 5(a) through (e) above,
but shall not be disclosed to a party, or to an officer, director or
employee of a party, unless otherwise agreed or ordered. If disclosure of
Attorneys' Eyes Only Material is made pursuant to this paragraph, all other
provisions in this Order regarding confidentiality also apply.

8. Nothing in this Order shall impose any restrictions on the use or
disclosure by a party of material obtained by such party independent of
discovery in this action, regardless of whether such material is also
obtained through discovery in this action or from disclosing its own
confidential material as it deems appropriate.



9. If confidential material, including any portion of a deposition
transcript designated as confidential or Attorneys' Eyes Only, is included
in any papers to be filed in court, such papers shall be labeled
"Confidential-Subject to Court Order" and filed under seal until further
order of this court.



10. If any confidential material is used in any court proceeding in
this action, it shall not lose its confidential status through such use, and
the party using such shall take all reasonable steps to maintain its
confidentiality during such use.



11. This Order shall be without prejudice to the right of the parties



a. to bring before the Court at any time the question of whether any
particular document or information is confidential or whether its use should
be restricted; or



b. to present a motion to the Court under Rule 26(c) of the Federal
Rules of Civil Procedure for a separate protective order as to any

Form 33-1 Interrogatories



[F.R.C.P. 33]



[Title of Court and Cause]



To: __________



[Address]



You are hereby notified to answer under oath the interrogatories
numbered from _______ to _______, inclusive, as shown below, within 30 days
after service of the interrogatories in accordance with Rule 33 of the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.



Plaintiff requests that the defendant answer the following
interrogatories in writing and under oath pursuant to Rule 33 of the Federal
Rules of Civil Procedure, and that the answers be served on the plaintiff
within 30 days after service of these interrogatories.



In answering these interrogatories, furnish all information, however
obtained, including hearsay, that is available to you and information known
by or in possession of yourself, your agents and your attorneys, or
appearing in your records.



If you cannot answer the following interrogatories in full after
exercising due diligence to secure the full information to do so, so state
and answer to the extent possible, specifying your inability to answer the
remainder, stating whatever information or knowledge you have concerning the
unanswered portion and detailing what you did in attempting to secure the
unknown information. If you cannot furnish exact information, such as dates,
periods or amounts, supply estimated information to the extent possible and
indicate that the information is estimated.



A question that seeks information contained in or information about or
identification of any documents may be answered by providing a copy of such
document for inspection and copying or by furnishing a copy of such document
without a request for production.



If you object to furnishing any information requested by these
interrogatories on the grounds of privilege, work product or other grounds,
your response should state the existence of the information, document or
communication, identify the specific grounds on which your objection is
based and identify the information objected to by furnishing its date,
participants (e.g., names of speakers or authors or addressees) and a
general description of the nature, rather than the substance of the
purportedly protected information. If the objected to information contains
relevant non-objectionable matter, you should disclose it.



These interrogatories shall be deemed to be continuing until and
during the course of trial. Information sought by these interrogatories that
you obtain after you serve your answers must be disclosed to the plaintiff
by supplementary answers. You are obligated to supplement your responses to
these interrogatories no later than thirty days after the discovery of the
new information and in no event later than fifteen days before the first day
of trial.



DEFINITIONS



The following definitions apply to these interrogatories:



1. Communication. The term "communication" means the transmittal of
information (in the form of facts, ideas, inquiries, or otherwise).



2. Document. The term "document" is defined to be synonymous in
meaning and equal in scope of the usage of this term in Rule 34(a) of the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. A draft or non-identical copy is a

3. Identify.



a. With Respect to Persons. When referring to a person, "to identify"
means to give, to the extent known, the person's full name, present or last
known address, and when referring to a natural person, additionally, the
present or last known place of employment. Once a person has been identified
in accordance with this subparagraph, only the name of that person need be
listed in response to subsequent discovery requesting the identification of
that person.



b. With Respect to Documents. When referring to documents, "to
identify" means to give, to the extent known, the (i) type of document; (ii)
general subject matter; (iii) date of the document; and (iv) author(s),
addressee(s), and recipient(s).



4. Parties. The terms "plaintiff" and "defendant" as well as a party's
full or abbreviated name or a pronoun referring to a party mean the party
and, where applicable, its officers, directors, employees, partners,
corporate parent, subsidiaries, or affiliates. This definition is not
intended to impose a discovery obligation on any person who is not a party
to the litigation.



5. Person. The term "person" is defined as any natural person or any
business, legal, or governmental entity, or association.



6. You or Your. The words "you" or "your" mean the [party], its
present and former members, officers, agents, employees, and all other

Form 33-3 Motion for Extension of Time Within Which to File Objections or To
Answer Interrogatories



[F.R.C.P. 33]



[Title of Court and Cause]



Plaintiff [or defendant] moves the court for a sixty-day extension
until [date] within which to file objections to interrogatories or within
which to answer interrogatories for the following reasons:



1. Interrogatories under Rule 33 of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure were served on [name], attorney for plaintiff [or defendant], on
[date]. There were _______ interrogatories, seeking such detailed
information that it is impossible, if the interrogatories were answered
without objection, to answer them within thirty days after service. The
information sought in most of the interrogatories is not within the
knowledge of the local counsel and, in order to answer these interrogatories
or to file pertinent objections to them, it will be necessary to have
considerable correspondence with the plaintiff [or defendant]. The time for
service of the answers is not sufficient in which to accomplish this.



2. Because of the numerous interrogatories, the wide scope of
information sought, and the nature of the interrogatories, it is apparent
that many, if not all, are not pertinent to the issues in the proceedings,
and that it will require preparation and study to object to the answering of
any of the interrogatories.



3. It will most likely be necessary that the plaintiff [or defendant]
seek an order limiting the scope of inquiry. An affidavit is attached and
made a part of this motion.

Form 33-7 Order Granting Party Leave to Serve Additional Interrogatories



[F.R.C.P. 33]



[Title of Court and Cause]



This cause comes before the Court on the plaintiff's motion for leave
of the Court to serve additional interrogatories on defendant and on
defendant's response.



Having considered the motion and the tendered interrogatories, this
Court determines that, while relevant, the number of interrogatories
tendered for a case of this nature is burdensome. This is particularly so in
light of the fact that plaintiff intends to depose the defendant.



Accordingly, the Court now grants plaintiff leave to serve an
additional thirty interrogatories on defendant. Plaintiff may designate
thirty interrogatories from those tendered. Plaintiff may delay its
designation until after plaintiff has completed defendant's depositions. In
the alternative, plaintiff may compose a new set of thirty or fewer
interrogatories consistent with this order.

such animal to perform a post-mortem examination of it and to remove samples
of it for analysis. Defendant shall have 24 hours after receiving such
notification within which to perform the post-mortem examination and within
which to remove samples for analysis.



IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff notify defendant of any

a telephone call placed as outlined in the preceding paragraph and to
include a statement of the proposed time and place of delivery and name and
address of the purchaser or commission agent to whom the animals are
consigned for sale, all to the end that defendant may have an opportunity to
arrange with the purchaser to examine the animals or, if sold for slaughter,
to make a post-mortem examination and to obtain samples for chemical
analysis.



Defendant's rights under the foregoing orders are subject to the
following limitations:



1. All representatives of defendant who enter upon the real property
will stay in two parties. Plaintiff or plaintiff's representatives shall
have the right to accompany the parties at all times.



2. Defendant shall give plaintiff a portion of any sample taken for

6. Defendant shall furnish to plaintiff the name and address of any
representative who makes examination or takes samples in conformance with

to be agreed upon by plaintiff and defendant, or, if they cannot agree, in
an amount to be determined in a summary hearing by this court.



8. Plaintiff shall have the option of rounding up its animals so that
defendant may take the monthly urine samples referred to in this order. In

Should any animal be injured by plaintiff or its employees while being
rounded up so that defendant may take these monthly urine samples, defendant
shall compensate plaintiff for such injury, if not willful, in an amount to
be agreed upon by the parties, or, if they cannot agree, in an amount to be
determined by this court.



9. Defendant will indemnify and hold plaintiff harmless from any and
all liability to others arising out of the sampling, examining,
photographing and measuring by defendant, and related incidental activities
under this order; provided, however, that defendant will not be required to
indemnify plaintiff with respect to injuries to others which are
intentionally caused by plaintiff or which are caused by the willful
misconduct of plaintiff.
