382013-07-24 ORDER denying 13 Motion to Dismiss. Yale moves to dismiss the IIED claim on the ground that the complaint does not allege extreme and outrageous conduct on the part of Yale. The arguments presented in support of the motion have substantial merit. To the extent the IIED claim is based on adverse employment actions, the allegations of the complaint do not show that the employment actions were carried out in a highly offensive manner. To the extent the claim is based on acts of discrimination, such acts normally do not support an IIED claim. To the extent the claim is based on Dr. Chiles's statement following the shooting at Ft. Hood, or statements by others, it is doubtful that the statements provide a basis for a finding of extreme and outrageous conduct on the part of Yale. Even so, the plaintiff persuasively argues based on Judge Arterton's opinion in the Craig case that his allegations, viewed fully and most favorably to him, should be deemed sufficent to survive the motion to dismiss. See Craig v. Yale Univ. Sch. of Med., 838 F. Supp. 2d 4, 11 (D. Conn. 2011). Having considered the parties' arguments, I conclude that the IIED claim should not be dismissed at this time, principally because of the unusual context provided by the residency program at Yale. Accordingly, the motion is hereby denied. So ordered. Signed by Judge Robert N. Chatigny on 7/24/13. (Chatigny, Robert) (Entered: 07/24/2013)

752014-11-26 Memorandum in Support re 74 MOTION for Protective Order Barring Deposition of Esperanza Diaz filed by Ahmed Abdel-Raouf. (Carey, Mark) (Entered: 11/26/2014)
762014-12-01 RULING denying 74 Motion for Protective Order. Plaintiffs Motion for Protective Order 74 , which seeks to preclude the video deposition of Esperanza Diaz on the grounds that discovery has closed and the defendant has not obtained court permission to take the deposition, is DENIED. There is no reason these arguments could not have been raised when the notice was served in October. Moreover, defense counsel has represented that the witness is leaving the country just after Christmas on sabbatical and will not be available to testify at the trial of this matter, now scheduled for the weeks of January 20 and 26, 2015. A video deposition is the best way to preserve her testimony for trial. Both parties agree that this is an important witness. However, because plaintiffs counsel now represents that he is on criminal jury duty which will not conclude in time to allow the deposition to occur at the noticed time, Dec. 2 at at 10 a.m., construing the Motion as an application to continue the deposition, the Court finds good cause for postponing the deposition until the conclusion of counsels jury service within the next two or three days. Counsel for the parties will confer between themselves and with the witness and reschedule the deposition for a date and time prior to the witness departure from the United States. If counsel are unable to agree, each attorney will submit proposed dates and times to the Court by Monday, December 8, and the Court will schedule the deposition. Signed by Judge Holly B. Fitzsimmons on 12/1/14. (Esposito, A.) (Entered: 12/01/2014)
