Jones Day lawyers are defending a $2 billion dispute and had argued that an adverse witness was unprepared for a deposition that lasted 14 hours. The lawyers were seeking an additional 7 hours of time to depose- the same witness.
While U.S. District Judge Beverly Martin granted an additional 4 hours time, she included a footnote in her Order pointing to a joke from the Woody Allen movie, "Annie Hall". The joke: " Two elderly woman are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, 'Boy the food at this place is really terrible.' The other one says 'Yeah , I know, and such small portions.'"
