Magistrate Judge Jeffrey J. Keyes, the newest Magistrate judge in the district, has issued an order on a motion for discovery sanctions that practitioners will want to take note of.

Judge Keyes reminds practitioners of the existence and importance of local rules on such motions, and cites to an important if somewhat hidden resource: Practice Pointers and Preferences of Judges in the District of Minnesota, U.S. District Court.

The order slaps the wrist of plaintiff’s counsel for failure to adhere to the local rules for such motions, then turns on defense counsel for a flimsy excuse for failure to comply with initial disclosure requirements.
