On June 10, 2010, multiple discovery issues were heard in the brain injury suit of Gagnon v. Burns, No. CL08-572 in Circuit Court for Gloucester County, Virginia. The Court first granted Plaintiffs’ Motion for Reconsideration and vacated its prior ruling that incorrectly had deemed certain Requests for Admission admitted when, in fact, the evidence presented by Mr. Waterman at hearing on December 16, 2009, strongly indicated that Plaintiff victims had a reasonable basis for denying the Requests as they did.

The Court in the Gagnon brain injury case also granted in part a Motion to Quash Subpoenas to NetZero and Verizon Wireless. The federal Stored Communication Act, 18 U.S.C. §2702-2703, prohibits producing the contents of a user’s private mail messages or stored content files.
