STATUS (PRETRIAL SCHEDULING)
RIPON UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT, DEFENDANT.

ORDER

An initial scheduling conference was held in this case on March 15, 2012; George Crook and Bryan Winn appeared for plaintiff; Marcella Gutierrez and Ileana Butu appeared for defendant.

All discovery shall be completed by June 29, 2012. In this context, "completed" means that all discovery shall have been conducted so that all depositions have been taken and any disputes relative to discovery shall have been resolved by appropriate order if necessary and, where discovery has been ordered, the order has been obeyed.
