IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 29, 2011
DELBERT CHRISTOPHER, PLAINTIFF,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
FOURTH STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER TO EXTEND DEADLINE FOR DISCLOSURE OF EXPERT WITNESSES
Pursuant to Local Rule 143 and 144, the parties in the above-captioned case stipulate to a 90-day extension for the deadline for disclosure of expert witnesses until October 6, 2011. Currently, the deadline for this disclosure is July 5, 2011. This is the fourth extension sought by the parties. The expert witness disclosures were initially due March 1, 2011, and Plaintiff requested an initial extension to retain an expert witness willing to travel to California State Prison, Corcoran (CSPC), obtain records from that facility and to arrange for the expert to examine Delbert Christopher at CSPC. The parties have just recently received the records from CSPC and Plaintiffs' medical expert has examined Delbert Christopher. The expert determined that an MRI is necessary to evaluate the injury; however, as the timing of the MRI is left to the discretion of CSPC, it is unclear when the MRI will be conducted. Given the time it has taken thus far to obtain records and arrange for the initial medical exam, the parties stipulate to a 90-day extension of the current expert disclosure deadline.
