IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 3, 2012
DELBERT CHRISTOPHER, PLAINTIFF,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER TO EXTEND DISCLOSURE OF EXPERT WITNESSES
Pursuant to Local Rule 143 and 144, the parties in the above-captioned case stipulate to a two-week extension to disclose expert witnesses. The parties have previously stipulated to extensions for this deadline to obtain records from California State Prison Corcoran (CSP-COR), where plaintiff Delbert Christopher is currently incarcerated, and to retain experts willing to travel to Corcoran and to schedule a medical exam. In June 2011, plaintiff's medical expert examined Mr. Christopher at CSP-COR, and determined that an MRI was necessary to evaluate the injury. Plaintiff's counsel has been coordinating with CSP-COR to receive updated medical files and a copy of the MRI. As the parties just recently received copies of the MRI, additional time is needed for the medical experts to evaluate this material for their expert reports.
Currently, the deadline for expert witness disclosure is February 4, 2012, and the parties stipulate to a two-week extension, to disclose each party's experts, until February 20, 2012. This is the seventh extension sought by the parties to extend the deadline for expert disclosure.
