Current Auto Industry Travails Do Not Excuse Former CEO From Deposition

In denying in part a motion to quash by defendant's former CEO, the court rejected the deponent's claim that the deposition "would 'seriously disrupt' the performance of his duties [as an executive for another company] during 'the current travails of the automotive industry. . . .' Though [the witness] may have a busy schedule, [he] has not shown any burden that would sufficiently outweigh Plaintiff’s request for discoverable information through a limited deposition."
