STIPULATION RE SCHEDULING DATES; ORDER
The parties hereby stipulate, by and through their respective counsel, to revise the discovery deadline, expert disclosure dates, and other related deadlines. A short extension of the deadlines is necessary to accommodate the schedules of the witnesses and counsel. The parties do not seek to continue this action's trial date.
The parties base this stipulation on good cause. Many of the witnesses are medical professionals with limited ability to be available for discovery. One of the treating physicians has relocated to Virginia. A short extension of the expert disclosure deadlines, discovery, and motion cutoffs is necessary to accommodate the schedules of the witnesses and counsel. Based on the above, the parties hereby stipulate to extend the following deadlines:
Old Date New Date
Third party Defendants' disclose expert witnesses: February 6, 2009 March 6, 2009
Plaintiff and United States disclose supplemental expert witnesses: March 6, 2009 April 3, 2009
Cutoff for non-expert discovery: March 6, 2009 April 17, 2009
Cutoff for expert discovery: June 5, 2009 June 26, 2009
Last day to file non-dispositive motions: June 19, 2009 July 24, 2009
Last day to file dispositive motions: August 7, 2009 September 11, 2009
Pre-trial conference: October 26, 2009 November 9, 2009
Motions shall be set on the first available date after the filing cutoff, allowing for timely service. All other deadlines set forth in the Scheduling Conference Order filed September 22, 2008, shall remain in effect unless otherwise approved by the Court. The parties request the Court to endorse this stipulation by way of formal order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
