As Mount Vernon Man Sues Harlem Hospital For Staff In Front Of His House Docs to Docket

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 7 –   Oludotun Akinde sued Harlem Hospital after complaining to it that three of its staff were in front of his house in Mount Vernon, having previously complained about discrimination.  

 On January 12 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.   

Harlem Hospital's Corporation Counsel argued about discovery problems, noting that the plaintiff's pro bono counsel had withdrawn and canceled deposition.

There was talk about documents in a drawer or an iCloud - what is that, it was asked - and a progression toward a summary judgment motion.

On April 5 Judge Woods held another proceeding, and Inner City Press again covered it. Judge Woods re-opened discovery since the hospital had neglected to search for paper as well as electronic records. But Akinde said he can't afford any more depositions, and wanted to move on to the the summary judgment motion immediately, today.

 Parties in the next case before Judge Woods had called in -- one said, Who else is there? -- and so the matter was put over.

On April 7, they met again, and Judge Woods ordered that all "tangible documents" found should be provided to Akinde in two weeks, seemingly by posting to the docket.

The case is Akinde v. New York City Health and Hospital Corporation et al., 16-cv-8882 (Woods)
