This is an update to my November 29, 2004, email reporting that Magistrate Judge Edward Schlatter will conduct a scheduling conference in the Phelps v. Qwest EBC case on February 3, 2005.  As you know, this case concerns the legal challenge to Qwest's wholesale denial of our request for a copy of:  1) the pension plan "investment policy guidelines";  and  2) the pension plan and health care plan "investment trust proxy voting policy."    The case will proceed to a scheduling conference where we will have our first meeting with the Magistrate Judge for the purpose of setting dates on depositions and the parameters of formal discovery requests, such as interrogatories and document requests.
 
 
In advance of the scheduling conference, today, I sent to Qwest's outside counsel a formal discovery request, 9 interrogatories and 8 separate requests for documents.  Qwest will be required to provide a response (i.e., answer the questions and produce the documents) 30 days after the February 3, 2005, scheduling conference.  A copy of the pending formal discovery request is attached hereto in Adobe PDF file format.
