Butler v. Rigsby
United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana
1998 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 4618 (E.D. La. 1998)
Butler and three others (plaintiffs) sued Rigsby (defendant) for injuries they sustained in a car accident. Rigsby filed notices of depositions on American Medical Group ("AMG") and Midtown Health Care ("MHC") and requested from these parties the lists of the total number of patients referred to them by the plaintiffs' attorneys, reports of their net incomes and the percentage of net income that was litigation-related, and lists of their patients. AMG and MHC moved for an order protecting the information from discovery by Rigsby, and the court denied their motions. AMG and MHC appealed.
