February 10, 2015 Minute Entry for proceedings held before Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto:Pre-motion tele-conference held on 2/10/2015 regarding defendant's proposed motion for a protective order. Thomas Lepak, Esq. appeared on behalf of plaintiffs and Ona Wang, Esq., Amy Traub, Esq., and Patrick Muldowney, Esq. appeared on behalf of defendants. The court advised the parties that it would be disinclined to grant a protective order due to the plaintiffs' counsel's representation that no additional letters, calls, or other solicitations to defendant's employees would be sent. Thus, without reaching the merits or finding any fault on the part of the plaintiffs, the court rendered the defendant's proposed motion for a protective order moot at this time. If defense counsel intends to proceed in sending a curative letter to defendant's employees, the parties have agreed to work together to draft an acceptable letter. Lastly, Judge Matsumoto disclosed to the parties that she has met defendant's counsel, Ona Wang, on occasion through bar-related activities. The court expressed its view that it can remain fair and impartial. Mr. Lepak, on behalf of plaintiffs, indicated that he has no concerns or reason to doubt the court's impartiality.
