AND NOW, this 10th day of December, 2008, upon consideration of defendants' motion to compel (Doc. 19), and in light of the telephone conference held with counsel of record on the date of this order, it is hereby ORDERED that:

1. The motion (Doc. 19) is GRANTED in part and DENIED in part as follows:

b. The motion is DENIED in all other respects.

2. Defendants shall be entitled to depose any individual identified pursuant to Paragraph 1.a for the purpose of determining whether documents subject to production requests exist in hard copy.

Defendants shall be entitled to depose at least the following individuals: (a) David A. Smith, (b) Terrence J. Kerwin, and (c) plaintiff's information technology manager or other individual who supervises plaintiff's ESI retention practices.
