ORDER OF COURT
AND NOW, this 27th day of June, 2006, upon consideration of the CITY'S MOTION TO COMPEL (Document No. 24) and PLAINTIFF'S RESPONSE TO CITY OF PITTSBURGH'S MOTION TO COMPEL, with brief in support (Document Nos. 25 & 26), and it appearing that the relevance of Plaintiffs' tax records to this action is undisputed, see Pltfs' Response at ¶ 8, that Plaintiffs' factually unsupported assertion that the tax records could be obtained and verified by other means is not sufficient to meet Plaintiffs' burden of proof, see id. at ¶ 9; see also Fort Washington Resources, Inc. v.

NOW THEREFORE, it is hereby ORDERED, ADJUDGED and DECREED that the City's Motion to Compel is GRANTED. It is further ORDERED that Plaintiffs shall produce full and complete responses to the City's Requests for Production of Documents on or before Friday, July 7, 2006.
