UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 23, 2007
HENRY COOKE, PLAINTIFF,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Nita L. Stormes U.S. Magistrate Judge
ORDER GRANTING SECOND JOINT MOTION TO AMEND SCHEDULING ORDER; [Doc. No. 13] SECOND AMENDED SCHEDULING ORDER
Before the Court is a Second Joint Motion to Amend Scheduling Order Regulating Discovery and Other Pre-Trial Proceedings [Doc. No. 13], filed by the parties in the above-captioned matter on February 21, 2007. The parties request that the Court extend for a second time the deadlines by which experts and rebuttal experts shall be designated so that three remaining depositions can be taken before these deadlines expire. (Joint Motion ¶¶ 4-5.) The Court finds good cause to extend these two pre-trial deadlines, however, the parties are cautioned that absent extraordinary circumstances, this shall be the final extension of these particular deadlines. Accordingly, the Court GRANTS the joint motion and IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT:
1. The parties shall designate their respective experts in writing by March 23, 2007. The parties must identify any person who may be used at trial to present evidence pursuant to Rules 702, 703 or 705 of the Fed. R. Evid. This requirement is not limited to retained experts.
2. The date for exchange of rebuttal experts shall be on or before April 13, 2007.
The written designations shall include the name, address and telephone number of the expert and a reasonable summary of the testimony the expert is expected to provide. The list shall also include the normal rates the expert charges for deposition and trial testimony.
3. All other terms and conditions of the Court's prior Scheduling Orders shall remain in full force and effect.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
