Case 1:12-cv-00114-JD Document 15 Filed 06/04/13 Page 1 of 2

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

DISTRICT OF NEW HAMPSHIRE





United States of America


v.


Charles Limanni, et al.



Civil No. 12-cv-114-JD

O R D E R




On June 3, 2013, a hearing was held on plaintiff’s motion

for an enlargement of time to complete discovery (doc. no. 14).

Attorney Thomas Cole appeared for plaintiff, defendants Charles

Limanni and Linda Limanni appeared on their own behalf, and

Attorney Steven Whitley appeared for defendant Town of

Barrington. All parties and counsel appeared via telephone.



The court grants plaintiff’s request to extend the deadline

for the close of discovery (doc. no. 14) so that Mr. Limanni’s

deposition can take place on July 1, 2013, at 1:00 p.m.

Discovery is extended until July 2, 2013.



Mr. Limanni raised the issue of retaining counsel for the

limited purpose of representing him at his deposition. The New

Hampshire state court rules, see N.H. Super. Ct. R. 14, and New

Hampshire Rules of Professional Conduct, see N.H.R. Prof.

Conduct 1.2(c), permit limited representation such as that

Case 1:12-cv-00114-JD Document 15 Filed 06/04/13 Page 2 of 2

proposed by Mr. Limanni. Unlike the United States District

Court for the District of Maine which expressly prohibits such

limited representation, see U.S. Dist. Ct. Rules D. Maine, Rule

83.2, this district has no rule on point. For limited

representation to occur here, the matter would need to be

brought before Judge DiClerico. Accordingly, to the extent Mr.

Limanni intends to pursue such limited representation of counsel

at his deposition, he shall file a request with the court on or

before June 17, 2013.

SO ORDERED.
