PLAINTIFF'S EX PARTE APPLICATION FOR AN ORDER CONTINUING INITIAL SCHEDULING CONFERENCE; ORDER
TO THE HONORABLE SANDRA M. SNYDER, THE PARTIES AND THEIR ATTORNEY/S OF RECORD:
Plaintiff J & J Sports Productions, Inc., hereby applies ex parte for an order continuing the Initial Scheduling Conference in this action, presently set for Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. to a new date approximately thirty (30) to forty-five (45) days forward. This request is necessitated by the fact that the Defendants Jeffrey Alan Hathcock and Marlene Sue Hathcock have not yet answered Plaintiff's Complaint (despite service of suit papers*fn1 ).
As such, as of this writing, Plaintiff has yet to receive an answer or any other responsive pleading from the defendants. As a result, Plaintiff's counsel has not conferred with the defendants concerning the claims, discovery, settlement, ADR or any of the other pertinent issues involving the case itself or the preparation of a Joint Initial Scheduling Conference Statement.
WHEREFORE, Plaintiff respectfully requests that this Honorable Court continue the Initial Scheduling Conference presently scheduled for Tuesday, February 28, 2012 to a new date approximately thirty (30) to forty-five (45) days forward.
Dated: February 15, 2012 /s/ Thomas P. Riley LAW OFFICES OF THOMAS P. RILEY, P.C. By: Thomas P. Riley Attorneys for Plaintiff J & J Sports Productions, Inc.
