STIPULATION AND (PROPOSED) ORDER CONTINUING FURTHER CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE DATE AND EXTENDING ADR DEADLINES
Pursuant to Local Rule 7-11, the parties file this stipulated motion to extend the ADR deadline in this case.
The parties have agreed to mediation of this matter through an ADR-appointed mediator, and Martin H. Dodd has been appointed as mediator. Mediation was to have been completed by July 21, 2009. The parties have been engaged in discovery in this wrongful death action, and believe that further discovery must be completed in order to conduct meaningful ADR discussions. The parties have conferred with Mr. Dodd, who concurs with the parties' request to extend the ADR deadline. Discovery in the case is proceeding, and the parties and Mr. Dodd have agreed to conduct the mediation on October 21, 2009, at 10:00 a.m., when all parties will have completed discovery sufficiently for purposes of mediation.
Whereas a Further Case Management Conference is currently set for July 31, 2009 at 1:30 p.m., the parties stipulate and respectfully request that the Further Case Management Conference be continued to October 23, 2009 at 1:30 p.m., two days after the mediation will be held in this action.
PURSUANT TO STIPULATION, good cause based on the parties' need to conduct additional discovery, the Court hereby Orders that the deadline for completion of ADR in this action is hereby extended to October 21, 2009.
FURTHERMORE, in light of the re-scheduled mediation date of October 21, 2009 and the parties' Stipulation, the Court hereby continues the July 31, 2009 Further Case Management Conference to October 23, 2009, at 1:30 p.m.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
