Mayweather's Emergency Appeal Denied in Pacquiao Case

LAS VEGAS, NEV. – U.S. District Court Judge Larry R. Hicks denied the Emergency Appeal filed by Floyd Mayweather, Jr. for a protective order to prevent his court-ordered deposition, finding that Mayweather's motion was "without merit." Mayweather's deposition had been scheduled for June 17, 2011, in Las Vegas, Nev. Mayweather refused to appear.

Judge Hicks' decision affirmed Magistrate Robert Johnston's order denying Mayweather's motion for a protective order to prevent his June 17 deposition.

"Floyd Mayweather, Jr. still is refusing to show up for his deposition. He continues to defy the Court's Order," said Pacquiao's lawyer Daniel Petrocelli

Mayweather is being sued by pound-for-pound champion and Congressman Manny Pacquiao based on Mayweather's defamatory statements accusing Pacquiao of taking performance-enhancing drugs
