December 7, 2009
YVETTE BRAVO, PLAINTIFF,
THE UNITED STATES LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY IN THE CITY OF NEW YORK, AND DOES 1 THROUGH 20, INCLUSIVE, DEFENDANTS.
On November 13, 2009, the magistrate judge filed findings and recommendations herein which were served on the parties and which contained notice that any objections to the findings and recommendations were to be filed by November 23, 2009. Defendant filed objections to the findings and recommendations on November 23, 2009 and they were considered by the undersigned.*fn1 On December 4, 2009, the magistrate judge filed amended findings and recommendations which were also served on the parties.
This court reviews de novo those portions of the proposed findings of fact to which objection has been made. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Commodore Business Machines, 656 F.2d 1309, 1313 (9th Cir. 1981), cert. denied, 455 U.S. 920 (1982). As to any portion of the proposed findings of fact to which no objection has been made, the court assumes its correctness and decides the motions on the applicable law. See Orand v. United States, 602 F.2d 207, 208 (9th Cir. 1979). The magistrate judge's conclusions of law are reviewed de novo. See Britt v. Simi Valley Unified School Dist., 708 F.2d 452, 454 (9th Cir. 1983).
The court has reviewed the applicable legal standards and, good cause appearing, concludes that it is appropriate to adopt the proposed Findings and Recommendations in full. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the discovery completion deadline of November 15, 2009 is extended to November 30, 2009, for the limited purpose of permitting defendant to produce the discovery at issue in the magistrate judge's November 13, 2009 order, and extended to December 11, 2009, for the limited purpose of permitting defendant to obtain, retrieve, redact, copy, and produce the discovery at issue in the magistrate judge's December 4, 2009 order.
