On LIRR Worker Hurt In Golf Club Mud SDNY Judge Engelmayer Slams Discovery Delay

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 16–  Gregory Boeckel while working for the Long Island Railroad was injured pushing an LIRR vehicle out of the mud on the Glen Head Country Club golf course, and sued.

 On June 10, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Engemayer inquired into the significance of the frolick and detour on the golf course - couldn't the plaintiff have been injured in mud on LIRR right of way land?

On November 16, Judge Engelmayer held another conference in the case, which Inner City Press also covered. Present were Marc Twyman Wietzke for the plaintiff, Gregory Boeckel, and Christopher Pogan for the LIRR.

 Judge Engelmayer expressed displeasure with the parties' cavalier approach to discovery deadlines, particularly with respect to expert discovery.

  He agreed to waive some deadline but not the ultimate one: that expert depositions must end by November 30. If they are not deposed they cannot testify. Judge Engelmayer told them, You know I am flexible, if you ask for extensions. But this was disrespectful to the court.

The case is Boeckel v. Long Island Railroad Company, 19-cv-11234 (Engelmayer).
