Turkmen v. Ashcroft

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK


January 30, 2006

IBRAHIM TURKMEN, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
v.
JOHN ASHCROFT, ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
EHAB ELMAGHRABY, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
v.
JOHN ASHCROFT, ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Steven M. Gold United States Magistrate Judge

Order

During a conference held on January 10, 2006, I directed defendants to produce documents from their personnel files. Although the parties agreed that certain personal identifying information could be redacted, I ordered that salary, pension and business interest information be produced. Tr. of January 10, 2006, at 12-13.

By letter dated January 25, 2006, docket entry 460 in 02-Civ-2307, defendants Zenk and Thomas move for reconsideration, arguing that the information I directed be produced is not relevant to plaintiffs' claims. As plaintiffs noted during the conference, however, the financial information at issue may well be relevant to claims for punitive damages. Moreover, the information does not raise the same privacy concerns as the personal identifying and family information I have already agreed should be redacted. Any request by defendants that their financial information be limited to attorneys'-eyes-only will, however, be granted. The motion of defendants Zenk and Thomas is accordingly denied.

SO ORDERED.
