Defendants to date have refused to respond to Request for Production of Documents to Defendant Ramsey County, Set II. Defendants have asked this Court to order that plaintiffs cannot propound these requests to them unless plaintiffs specifically articulate how the requests are relevant to the claims or defenses of any party. However, defendants’ memorandum of law only discusses (without even specifically identifying the offending document requests) Request Nos. 5-10. See Defs.’ Protective Mem. at p. 10. These requests were as follows:
