UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA -SACRAMENTO
March 30, 2011
WILLIAM BROCKLEY, TINA BROCKLEY, PLAINTIFFS,
CLAUDE MCWHORTER, DISCOVERY ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
[Assigned to Judge Garland E. Burrell, Jr. for all purposes]
On Account of the parties' willingness and intent to pursue and complete a scheduled private mediation with Judge Richard L. Gilbert on April 12, 2011 (first available date), the parties jointly seek the necessary and unavoidable further continuation of the discovery and expert related deadlines previously ordered by the Court by approximately thirty (30) days to allow for the pursuit of private mediation, and if necessary, time appropriate extensive discovery. A Further Amended Joint Status Conference Report including the proposed amended deadlines has been attached hereto as Exhibit "A".
[PROPOSED] JOINT STIPULATION SEEKING AMENDMENT OF CASE DATES AND RELATED DEADLINES; AND ORDER THEREON
The previously agreed upon time line presently controlling was premised on the ability of all parties to fully participate in the discovery process and be prepared to complete mediation in January 2011. Due to circumstances beyond the parties' control, this could not and did not occur. The granting of this Stipulation will allow for the parties to aggressively and meaningfully pursue potential resolution prior to incurring substantial costs that would otherwise greatly prejudice the prospect of informal resolution short of trial.
Based on the above, the parties jointly and respectively request the Court's approval of this PROPOSED JOINT STIPULATION SEEKING AMENDEMENT OF CASE RELATED DISCOVERY DEADLINES and the granting of the continuance of discovery expert deadlines by approximately thirty (30) days. In the alternative, the parties request the scheduling of an appropriate and first available hearing to address their concerns and the request made by way of this filing.
