Sandra Rinker v. Carnival Corporation and Ramanbhai Patel – Part 1

Order Granting Protective Order and Quashing subpoena

In this order from the Southern District of Florida, the court has granted Plaintiff’s Motion for a Protective Order.  Carnival chose to depose Plaintiff’s husband on a day that he was unavailable do to other obligations.  Rather than work with the Plaintiff, Carnival moved forward and attempted to serve a subpoena on Plaintiff’s husband.  In order to protect the Plaintiff from undue burden, our attorneys filed a motion with the court, seeking to quash the subpoena and prevent the deposition.  This order grants Plaintiff’s requested relief.
