In Apeldyn Corp. v. AU Optronics, Inc., C.A. No. 08-568-SLR (D. Del. Aug. 2, 2011), Judge Robinson recently modified Special Master Poppiti’s order for sanctions against a party that failed to adequately prepare its Rule 30(b)(6) designees for their depositions. Id. at 3-4. Although Judge Robinson “agree[d] generally with the fact that AUO’s corporate designees were inadequately prepared,” she found that “Apeldyn’s counsel focused their efforts to create a record for the motion it ultimately presented, rather than in obtaining the substantive information noticed.” Id. at 3. Thus, the court ordered AUO “to produce one or more substitute witnesses[,]” but held that the deposition must be limited “to the ten most important [noticed] topics (as identified by Apeldyn)[,]” that the “continued deposition shall be limited to ten hours[,]” and that “Apeldyn shall be responsible for its own costs and fees in connection with the deposition[.]” Id. at 4.
