STIPULATION AND ORDER RE: MODIFICATION OF SCHEDULING ORDER
Plaintiffs TERRY HILLBLOM, SANDRA HILLBLOM and MICHAEL L., by and through his guardians ad litem, TERRY AND SANDRA HILLBLOM ("Plaintiffs") and defendants COUNTY OF FRESNO, RICHARD PIERCE, ROBERT CAREY, KATHY CARREIRO, and ERIC BROUGHTON ("Defendants") hereby stipulate to the following modification of the current scheduling order.
On March 9, 2010 the parties entered into a stipulation to amend the entire scheduling order in order to participate in mediation, expecting the mediation to take place in April. Such a schedule would have allowed the parties sufficient time to take additional depositions, avoiding expenditure of attorneys' fees and costs if the mediation were successful. However, due to conflicting schedules, the mediation could not take place until May 10, 2010; even though this date would not allow time for depositions, the parties held off seeking another amendment of the scheduling order until we learned the outcome of the mediation.
The parties unsuccessfully mediated the case on May 10, 2010. They therefore now seek an amended scheduling order so that parties may now take the depositions they had deferred pending mediation. This stipulation does not request an order changing any hearing dates, or the trial date.
Therefore, the parties request the Court issue an Order making the following changes to the Scheduling Order in this case:
Expert Disclosure: from May 17, 2010to June 15, 2010
Supplemental Expert Disclosure: from June 7, 2010 to July 15, 2010
Non-expert Discovery Cutoff: from May 17, 2010 to August 1, 2010
Expert Discovery Cutoff: from July 15, 2010 to August 1, 2010
Note: Any hearing dates, pre-trial or trial dates may only be Amended by Judge O'Neill and only upon a showing of good cause.
