IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 22, 2010
LEO BERGER, PLAINTIFF,
J.T. BRANDON, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
ORDER DENYING APPLICATION TO CONTINUE LAST LAW AND MOTION HEARING DATE
Plaintiff's ex parte application for an order changing the last law and motion hearing date prescribed in the scheduling order is denied because Plaintiff fails to demonstrate that the amendment he seeks is justified under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 16's "good cause" standard. See Zivkovic v. Southern California Edison Co., 302 F.3d 1080, 1088 (9th Cir. 2002) (stating "'good cause'" must be demonstrated to justify "modifying the scheduling order, as required by Fed.R.Civ.P. 16(b)."). Further, to grant the application would necessitate continuing the final pretrial conference and trial dates.
