UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
United States of America
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

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.
