Lunada Bay Boys Defendant Sang Lee Ordered To Produce Everything On His Damn Phone Except His Home Address, Emails From His Lawyer, And His Porn Collection, And To Do It By 2 P.M. Today

For background take a look at this excellent article from the Times on this lawsuit. Also see here to download all pleadings in this case.

You may recall that, a few days ago, the plaintiffs in the Lunada Bay Boys case filed a bunch of paperwork having to do with defendant Sang Lee’s uncooperative attitude towards his discovery obligations, leading to the Honorable Rozella Oliver, magistrate judge in the case, issuing a minute order telling Sang Lee to get moving and hand over the goods.

Well, they had another telephone conference about Sang Lee’s phone this morning, and Oliver, having inspected everything on the phone in secret, issued an order compelling Sang Lee to hand over everything on the phone except “sensitive personal photographs, Defendant Lee’s residential address, and communications between Defendant Lee and his attorneys.” (As always, there’s a transcription of the order after the break).1

Transcription of today’s order:


Proceedings: MINUTE ORDER RE: TELEPHONIC HEARING

The case was called and counsel for the parties entered their appearances. The parties and the Court discussed the pending discovery dispute between Plaintiffs and Defendant Sang Lee regarding the production of an extraction report that was created as a result of imaging Defendant Lee’s cellular phone.

The Court has conducted an in camera review of the extraction report. As stated on the record, Defendant Lee is ordered to produce the extraction report by 2:00 p.m. today, July 25, 2017. Defendant Lee may redact only the following from the extraction report: sensitive personal photographs, Defendant Lee’s residential address, and communications between Defendant Lee and his attorneys.

The parties may file a stipulated protective order governing production of the extraction report. The failure to agree upon a stipulated protective order shall not relieve Defendant Lee of the obligation to product the extraction report by the 2:00 p.m. deadline.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

  1. The order says “sensitive personal photographs” and this post’s headline says “porn collection,” but we’re talking about the same stuff.
