Remember how poor Marc Brumer had to sit there waiting for his client Suge Knight to show up for his own deposition, then Suge came really late and Magistrate Judge O’Sullivan sanctioned him $1300?
Well Suge still hasn’t paid, necessitating yet another order:
ORDERED and ADJUDGED that the defendant’s request to have this case dismissed for the plaintiff’s failure to pay the $1300.00 as required by the undersigned’s May 4, 2010, Order (DE #42) is DENIED. It is further
ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that on or before July 6, 2010, the plaintiff shall pay the $1300.00 ordered to be paid by the undersigned’s May 4, 2010, Order (DE # 42) or submit to the Court an affidavit as to why the plaintiff’s financial condition prevents him from paying the $1300.00. If the plaintiff chooses to submit the affidavit, he must attach all supporting financial documents.
Wow — is Suge really saying he can’t afford to pay a $1300 sanction?
In related news, Suge and Kanye met the other day to try to settle the case:
West and Knight sat down with lawyers June 19, 2010, to discuss the lawsuit. “I figured I could sit him down, man to man, and get this resolved,” Knight said of the six-hour meeting. “I’m disappointed.”
Note to Suge — when talking about sitting down “man to man,” you may want to remember your presiding judge is a woman.
I’ll say it again, poor Marc Brumer.
