Stipulation and Protective Order
The parties stipulate as follows and request the Court enter the appropriate orders moving the close of discovery:
The initial close of discovery was 31 January 2012 (Doc. 146) but, because of the outstanding orders regarding the 16 June 2011 discovery motion hearing (Doc. 135), close of discovery was continued until 29 February 2012 (Doc. 149).
Plaintiff has filed two new discovery motions (Docs. 150 & 153), scheduled to be heard on 22 February 2012 [Defendant's failure to provide due diligence declarations in violation of the court's instructions, guidance and orders (Doc. 153)] and 29 February 2012 [Defendant's failure to comply with the court's minutes of 21 June 2011 (Doc. 150)].
These three outstanding orders impact Plaintiff's ability to take meaningful depositions within the limited time left.
The parties have met and conferred, and hereby stipulate that the close of discovery needs to be moved to 31 March 2012.
Close of discovery is continued from 2/29/12 (Doc. 149) to 3/30/12.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
