WHEELING - Thirteen North Carolina men alleging legal malpractice against Provost Umphrey of Beaumont, Texas, want U.S. Magistrate Judge James Seibert to move their depositions from Wheeling to locations near their homes.
Their lawyer, Donald Tennant Jr. of Wheeling, pleaded physical and economic hardship in a motion for a protective order on Oct. 19.
He certified he made a good faith effort to resolve the matter without filing a motion.
"Defendants herein possess a financial position greater than the plaintiffs," he wrote.
Tennant said his clients "were hamstrung to file the litigation where the transaction occurred rather than where they resided."
