Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with a complaint filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Defendants answered the complaint on June 8, 2012. On June 22, 2012, a discovery and scheduling order was issued by the court.

Thereafter, defendants requested an extension of time until October 15, 2012 to file an opposition to plaintiff's motion for summary judgment as well as a cross-motion for summary judgment. (See Dkt. No. 59.) The court granted defendants' request. (See Dkt. No. 60.)
On October 11, 2012, shortly before their opposition and any cross-motion were due to be filed, defendants' filed a motion to modify the discovery and scheduling order. (See Dkt. No. 65.) Good cause appearing, defendants' motion to modify the discovery and scheduling order will be granted in part.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Defendants' motion to modify the discovery and scheduling order (Dkt. No. 65.) is GRANTED IN PART;
