United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Sherman Division
April 1, 2022, Decided; April 1, 2022, Filed
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
Pending before the Court is the United States' Motion to Quash Defendant Jindal's Subpoenas for Documents from Third Parties (Dkt. #82). Having considered the motions and the relevant pleadings, the Court finds the motions should be DENIED.
The background of this case is more thoroughly set forth in the Court's Order on Defendants' Motion to Dismiss (Dkt. #56). Highly summarized, on April 15, 2021, the Government filed the First Superseding Indictment (hereinafter "Indictment") as to Neeraj Jindal ("Jindal") and John Rodgers ("Rodgers") (Dkt. #21). Pursuant to the Indictment, Defendants were charged with: (1) conspiring to fix prices in violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1 (Count One); (2) conspiring to commit multiple offenses against [*2] the United States in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371 (Count 2); and (3) obstructing proceedings before the Federal Trade Commission in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1505 (Count Three and Four) (Dkt. #21).
Turning to the present dispute, the United States moves to quash Defendant Jindal's trial subpoenas that were served on three companies identified in the Indictment, including Dwell Therapy, Innovative Therapy Resources, and Therapy Heroes (Dkt. #90 at p. 3). More specifically, these subpoenas command the respective witnesses "to appear and testify at trial as well as bring documents and communications related to therapist pay rates in March, April, and May 2017" (Dkt. #90 at p. 3 (internal citations omitted)).
On March 29, 2022, the United States filed the present motion (Dkt. #82). On March 31, 2022, Jindal file his response, and the United States filed its reply (Dkt. #90).
Full case includes Shepard's, Headnotes, Legal Analytics from Lex Machina, and more.
