United States District Court, Southern District of New York
March 31, 2003
AUSCAPE INTERNATIONAL, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lewis A. Kaplan, United States District Judge
By letter dated March 24, 2003, plaintiffs seek the Court's aid in compelling certain discovery by defendants.*fn1 The letter makes a number of factual assertions regarding defendants' actions in discovery. Defendants' responding letter, dated March 27, 2003, states that a number of plaintiffs' allegations are false, although it does not always provide any support for those contentions apart from the ipse dixit of the author.
Absent supplementation by defendants, on or before April 1, 2003, the Court will disregard their unsupported assertions that plaintiffs' assertions are false.
