By and through this stipulation, the parties seek relief from this court in so far as allowing them to take the percipient witness deposition after the discovery cut-off date so as to accommodate Dr. Rusquellas's medical condition.
2) Similar to Dr. Rusquellas, percipient witness Randy Vergos has recently endured a surgical operation and will be unavailable to sit for a deposition until October 2009.
