October 13, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 296 ORDER: The Court finds that there is good cause for adjourning the trial and adjourns it to January 11, 2021. Although Fed. R. Civ. P. 43(a) permits remote testimony, the language of that rule makes it clear that it is less preferred tha n in-person testimony. In the two prior cases that the Court heard remotely, the parties consented to the remote trial. Defense counsel here does not consent and for reasons that, on their face, appear to be reasonable, at least at the cu rrent time. The Court has the power to keep the current trial date, requiring counsel either to quarantine for 14 days or for Strategic to obtain new counsel. But, the circumstances do not appear to warrant it, and the short delay Strategic proposes will not prejudice Eastern in a case where the only relief sought is monetary. The Court will schedule trial for January 11, 2021. Trial will be held in open court, in Courtroom 15C, assuming that the courthouse remains open. If Strategic's counsel is unable to travel to New York, Strategic will have to obtain new counsel to try this case. Counsel should make sure to secure the presence of their witnesses as soon as possible. The Court will entertain Fed. R. Civ. P. 43(a) applications for remote testimony on a case-by-case basis should circumstances require. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Lewis J. Liman on 10/13/2020) (va)

January 13, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 243 ORDER, It is hereby ORDERED as follows: 1. This Court finds that the scope of the questioning of Bannon sought by Defendant is overbroad and that the topics sought to be explored by Defendant with this witness are largely irrelevant to the claims or defenses asserted in this case. Therefore, so as to avoid undue burden to the witness, modification of the subpoena under Rule 45(d)(3)(A)(iv) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure is warranted. As discussed preliminarily with counsel, and as furth er informed by the parties' written communications to this Court thereafter, the subpoena shall be modified to allow written questions (the answers to which shall be sworn or answered under penalty of perjury by Bannon in lieu of his providing s worn in-person testimony), limited to the following, in words or substance: as further set forth herein. If Bannon answers any of these questions in the affirmative, then this Court will allow a brief deposition so that a full narrative response may be provided on the record. Any such deposition shall be scheduled at the witness's convenience, but not later than January 31, 2020. The written questions contemplated by this Order shall be served on counsel for Bannon no later than January 14 , 2020, and, absent an extension by this Court for good cause shown, written responses (sworn or expressly made under penalty of perjury) shall be provided no later January 17, 2020. SO ORDERED. (Deposition due by 1/31/2020.) (Signed by Magistrate Judge Debra C. Freeman on 1/13/2020) Copies to All counsel (via ECF). (kv)
