01/24/2012   ORDER DECLINING TO APPROVE re [60] Notice of Voluntary Dismissal filed by Warren Schreiber, Howard Leib, Mark A. Favors, Lillie H. Galan, Weyman A. Carey, Edward A. Mulraine - Upon a review of the Notice of Voluntary Dismissal of Counts V and VI of the complaint filed by plaintiffs, the court declines to "SO ORDER" or approve such dismissal. The court declines to do so because, on page two of the Notice of Voluntary Dismissal, specifically, paragraph 2, it inaccurately states that "... no Defendant has served either an answer or a motion for summary judgment." The defendants in this case have filed a motion to dismiss the complaint in lieu of an answer. Certainly, plaintiffs may voluntarily dismiss any counts inthe complaint they no longer wish to pursue. As such, plaintiffs may resubmit a corrected Voluntary Notice of Dismissal as to Counts V and VI. If plaintiffs wish to dismiss those counts, they must file a corrected Voluntary Notice of Dismissal NO LATER THAN February 3, 2012, as the court will soon need to address the motion to dismiss. SO ORDERED by Judge Dora Lizette Irizarry on 01/24/12. (Irizarry, Dora)

Kolb (the "Kolb Motion"), in which Defendant Robert Oaks joined (DE #42), Defendants Kolb and Oaks are hereby directed to respond NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 3, 2012 to plaintiffs' letter suggesting that the motion be decided by a three-judge panel since the motion goes beyond procedural issues of ripeness, justiciability or standing, seeking dismissal on constitutional grounds as well. In the alternative, plaintiffs suggest that the court decide the Skelos motion or those portions of the two motions that overlap first. SO ORDERED by Judge Dora Lizette Irizarry on 1/27/2012. (Irizarry, Dora)

03/28/2012   STATUS REPORT ORDER- Status Report due by 3/30/2012 -- At the hearing held before the 3-judge panel on March 15, 2012, counsel for the Assembly Majority Defendants advised the court that the Assembly Redistricting Plan ("Assembly Plan") just enacted would be submitted to the Department of Justice ("DOJ") for preclearance by the following Monday, March 19, 2012. However, at the status conference held before the 3-judge panel on March 21, counselfor the Assembly Majority Defendants informed the court that the Assembly Plan had not been submitted to the DOJ for preclearance because certain errors had to be fixed, some of which affected "covered" jurisdictions. However, counsel assured the Court that the Assembly Plan would be submitted to the DOJ the next day and that parallel proceedings would be instituted immediately for the convening of a 3-judge panel in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ("DC Court") to preclear the Assembly Plan. Notably, the Senate Redistricting Plan had already been submitted to the DOJ and a parallel, 3-judge panel proceeding had been instituted in the DC Court by the Senate Majority Defendants. Despite the AssemblyMajority Defendants' representations, it appears that, to date, the Assembly Plan has not been submitted to the DOJ (and apparently no parallel proceeding before the DC Court has been commenced). See Plaintiffs' Amended Complaint, para. 71, Doc. Entry No. 255. Nor have the Assembly Majority Defendants advised the court as to the reason for their failure to do so. Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that ON OR BEFORE 4:00 P.M. March 30, 2012, the Assembly Majority Defendants are to confirm to the Court that the necessary submission to DOJ has been made, or explain why not. SO ORDERED by Circuit Judge Reena Raggi, Circuit Judge Gerard E. Lynch, and District Judge Dora Lizette Irizarry on 03/28/12.(Irizarry, Dora)

The electronic filings and hard copies must contain a cover letter specifying what the document is. Additionally, when filing the DC Court documents via ECF, Defendants shall take care NOT to file them as motions or otherrequest for action by either the 3-judge panel or magistrate judge in this case.

For the reasons stated in the attached Memorandum and Order, the Court denies without prejudice the Senate Minority's motion to compel, and defers decision on the motions for protective orders filed by the Senate Majority, Assembly Majority, and Assembly Minority, pending the Court's completion of an in camera inspection of documents. The defendants are directed to produce, by August 17, 2012, the following documents for in camera inspection: The Senate Majority is directed to produce all documents listed in its privilege logs; the Assembly Majority and Assembly Minority are directed to produce all documents listed in their privilege logs relating to Assembly districts in Nassau County. Thedocuments produced for in camera inspection are to be provided in both hard copy and in electronic format. The Court will issue a separate order with further instructions regarding the protocol for electronic production. Further, the Senate Majority, Assembly Majority, and Assembly Minority are each directed to file, by August 20, 2012, a revised privilege log and personnel list that cure the defects identified in Part III of this Memorandum and Order, along with a supplemental affidavit regarding redistricting responsibilities for each LATFOR staff member, and evidentiary submissions to support any claims of attorney-client privilege.

08/15/2012 490 ORDER re [489] Letter filed by Dean G. Skelos, Welquis R. Lopez, Michael F. Nozzolio. The Court approves defendants' selection of vendor AlphaLit and stand-alone electronic discovery database E-Direct 3.0. Defendants may provide solely native files for Excel, PowerPoint, and database files for use in connection with redistricting maps. All other documents should be provided in Bates-stamped, single-page TIFF format. Defendants need not provide the Court with hard copies of any documents at this time, although, in the event that it requires large-scale batch printing, the Court may request hard-copy production of certain subsets of documents. Further, after reviewing defendants' request for additional time to submit revised privilege logs and provide documents for in camera inspection, the Court modifies the deadlines in its August 10th orders in the following limited respects: defendants are directed to submit their final revised privilege logs and documents for in camera inspection by August 29, 2012, and to produce to plaintiffs any non-privileged, responsive documents by August 30, 2012. As a result of this extension, the Court expects that the document database for in camera inspection will reflect the final revised privilege logs, excluding documents determined to be non-privileged or non-responsive, and including metadata denoting the general subject matter of each document. So ordered by Magistrate Judge Roanne L. Mann on 8/15/2012. (Dempsey, Jameson)
