The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Ronald S.W. Lew Senior, U.S. District Court Judge
Re: Defendant's Ex Parte Application to Exclude Expert Testimony or Alternatively to Amend Scheduling Order to Continue Pending Dates 
Currently before this Court is Defendant AMCO Insurance Company's ("Defendant") Ex Parte Application to Exclude Expert Testimony or Alternatively to Amend Scheduling Order to Continue Pending Dates . Having considered the Application and the Opposition filed by Plaintiff A-1 Transmission Automotive Technology, Inc. ("Plaintiff"), THE COURT NOW FINDS AND RULES AS FOLLOWS:
Defendant's Request to Exclude Expert Testimony is DENIED. The Court finds that good cause does not exist to preclude Plaintiff from presenting any expert testimony in this case.

(1) Pursuant to the Magistrate Judge's October 25, 2011 Order , Plaintiff shall designate all experts and serve expert reports in full compliance with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26 no later than Monday, October 31, 2011;
(2) Defendant shall have thirty days from Plaintiff's disclosure compliance to designate rebuttal experts and serve rebuttal reports, if desired;
