STIPULATION REGARDING INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EXAMINATION AND EXPERT DESIGNATION AND ORDER
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties herein, through their respective counsel, that the defendants herein shall be permitted to schedule a medical examination of plaintiff, HENRY J. PARSONS, JR., past the current discovery cutoff date of September 25, 2008, and to occur during the week of October 12, 2008, should this case not settle at the October 9, 2008 mandatory settlement conference.
IT IS FURTHER STIPULATED that the parties herein shall designate expert witnesses on October 23, 2008, instead of the current date of September 15, 2008, and supplemental designation shall occur on November 6, 2008.
The parties herein have been unable to complete the depositions of the plaintiffs or defendant's representatives due to the trial schedules of all counsel. The depositions of plaintiffs and defendant's representatives are scheduled to occur on September 22, and September 23, 2008. The defendants will be in a better position to ascertain the types of defense medical examination necessary after plaintiff's deposition is completed and the parties herein would like to attempt settlement prior to incurring the expense of having experts prepare reports.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that defendants will be permitted to schedule a medical examination of plaintiff, HENRY J. PARSONS, JR., past the current discovery cutoff date of September 25, 2008, and to occur during the week of October 12, 2008, should this case not settle at the October 9, 2008 mandatory settlement conference.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the current expert witness designation and supplemental expert witness designation deadlines, be continued from September 15, 2008, and October 15, 2008, respectively, to October 23, 2008 for designation of expert witness and November 6, 2008 for supplemental expert witness designation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
