Morris v. Life Insurance Co. of North America

June 22, 2009

DAVID MORRIS, PLAINTIFF,
v.
LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY OF NORTH AMERICA; CORN PRODUCTS INTERNATIONAL, INC., BENEFIT PLAN, DEFENDANTS.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge

STATUS (PRETRIAL SCHEDULING) ORDER

The status (pretrial scheduling) conference scheduled for June 29, 2009, is vacated since the parties indicate in the Joint Status Report filed on June 12, 2009, that the following Order should issue.

SERVICE, JOINDER OF ADDITIONAL PARTIES, AMENDMENT

No further service, joinder of parties or amendments to pleadings is permitted, except with leave of Court, good cause having been shown.

DISCOVERY

Defendants shall file a copy of the administrative record no later than July 22, 2009. The parties dispute whether discovery outside the administrative record should be allowed. A party desiring discovery must file a motion that seeks specified discovery, and the factual and legal basis therefor, to be heard no later than September 28, 2009 at 9:00 a.m.

Failure to comply with this local rule may be deemed consent to the motion and the Court may dispose of the motion summarily. Brydges v. Lewis, 18 F.3d 651, 652-53 (9th Cir. 1994). Further, failure to timely oppose a summary judgment motion may result in the granting of that motion if the movant shifts the burden to the non-movant to demonstrate a genuine issue of material fact remains for trial. Cf. Marshall v. Gates, 44 F.3d 722 (9th Cir. 1995).

Absent highly unusual circumstances, reconsideration of a motion is appropriate only where:

(1) The Court is presented with newly discovered evidence that could not reasonably have been discovered prior to the filing of the party's motion or opposition papers;

(2) The Court committed clear error or the initial decision was ...
