Kalinauskas v. Wong

United States District Court for the District of Nevada
151 F.R.D. 363 (D. Nev. 1993)


Facts

Kalinauskas (plaintiff) sued Caesars Palace and Wong (defendant), its representative, her former employer, for sexual discrimination. She sought to depose another former Caesars Palace employee who had sued Caesars Palace previously for sexual discrimination and had settled the matter pursuant to a confidential settlement agreement. The court examined the confidential settlement and noted that the employee had agreed not to discuss any aspect of her employment at Caesars other than the dates of her employment and her job title. Caesars sought an order from the court protecting the employee from being deposed.
