IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 19, 2011
ELBERT LEE VAUGHT, PLAINTIFF,
B. MIRANDA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
On September 2, 2011, counsel for defendants filed a request seeking clarification of the court's April 7, 2011 discovery and scheduling order. Specifically, defendants seek clarification of the court's order that requires "[a]ll pre-trial motions, except for motions to compel discovery, shall be filed on or before September 30, 2011." (Order (Doc. No. 29), ¶ 7 at 6.) Defendants note that they have already filed a cross-motion for summary judgment, and ask if "pre-trial motions" referred to in the scheduling order includes motions in limine.
The court's discovery and scheduling order does not set a deadline for the filing of motions in limine. A deadline for the filing of motions in limine, if necessary, will be set in this court's pretrial order. Defendants' cross-motion is a dispositive motion and was timely filed.
Accordingly, defendants' September 2, 2011 request for clarification (Doc. No. 41) is granted.
