AMENDMENTS TO SCHEDULING ORDER
On May 29, 2009, the Plaintiff filed a "Consensual Application for Leave of Court to Modify Pretrial Scheduling Order," and proposed to modify the pretrial scheduling order with regards to discovery cut-off and motion practice dates.
Since the parties agree to a modification of the Rule 16 Scheduling Order, and modification can be made without adversely affecting the undersigned judge's trial docket, the modification will be granted; however, other prescribed scheduling dates will also be modified to accommodate the essence of the parties' request.
Therefore, the Rule 16 Scheduling Order is modified as follows:
(1) all discovery shall be completed by October 26, 2009;
(2) the last hearing date for motions shall be October 26, 2009, at 9:00 a.m.; and,
(3) the final pretrial conference is rescheduled to commence at 3:30 p.m. on December 21, 2009.*fn1
The trial scheduled to commence at 9:00 a.m. on February 9, 2010, remains unchanged.
