United States District Court, W.D. Pennsylvania
July 7, 2015
RICHARD A. STERRETT, Plaintiff,
GIANT EAGLE, INC., et al., Defendants.
CATHY BISSOON, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Kelly's ruling regarding Plaintiff's tax returns was neither clearly erroneous nor contrary to law. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(a) (reciting standards of review governing magistrate judges' non-dispositive rulings). Accordingly, Plaintiff's Objections (Doc. 76) are OVERRULED, and Judge Kelly's ruling is AFFIRMED.
Furthermore, Plaintiff's stated concerns regarding his wife's privacy interests easily may be addressed through redaction or protective order. See Kumar v. Hilton Hotels Corp., 2009 WL 3681837, *3 (W.D. Tenn. Oct. 30, 2009) (redaction); Interstate Narrow Fabrics, Inc. v. Century USA, Inc., 2004 WL 444570, *3 n.2 (M.D. N.C. Feb. 24, 2004) (protective order). The Court is confident that counsel can resolve this issue without further judicial intervention.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
