DENNETTE PIONTEK, ET AL. PLAINTIFFS,
CREDITORS SPECIALTY SERVICE, INC. D/B/A CSS, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Oliver W. Wanger United States District Judge
ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFFS' MOTION TO EXTEND THE DISCOVERY DEADLINE AND CORRESPONDING DATES
Date: December 6, 2010
Telephonic appearance requested
Now come the Plaintiffs, by and through counsel, and respectfully move the Court to extend the discovery deadlines and revise the remaining dates accordingly.
In support of this Motion, Plaintiffs represent that, in the interests of time and costs, they refrained from conducting further discovery while Plaintiffs' Motion for Finding of Liability (Docket # 13), which was filed on June 25, 2010, was pending before this Court. That Motion was eventually heard on September 14, 2010 and, on October 14, 2010, this Court issued on Order denying Plaintiffs' Motion; however, the deadline for discovery in this case passed on October 6, 2010. To date, Plaintiffs requested deposition dates from Defendant but Defendant has yet to respond; if Defendant does no so by October 31, 2010, Plaintiffs intend to arbitrarily notice depositions in December 2010.
Given the foregoing, Plaintiffs respectfully request that the discovery deadline be extend to January 15, 2011 and the remaining dates adjusted accordingly. The extension is necessary because the parties responsibly chose not to expend additional resources while Plaintiffs' Motion was pending that, if granted, would have made further discovery unnecessary.
