November 22, 2019

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
v.
ELIZABETH ROBINSON, Defendant.

          MEMORANDUM DECISION AND ORDER

          B. Lynn Winmill United States District Judge.

         INTRODUCTION

         Before the Court is Defendant Elizabeth Robinson's Motion to Compel (Dkt. 23). For the reasons explained below, the Court will deny the motion.

b. when such agents must or may take notes or prepare written reports;
