STIPULATION AND ORDER TO CONTINUE MANDATORY SCHEDULING CONFERENCE
MICHAEL J. SENG, Magistrate Judge.
Plaintiff, PRIMERICA LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY ("Plaintiff") and Defendants LISA CARRINGTON, CHERI LUECK and DONALD ATKINS ("Defendants"), by and through their respective attorneys, enter into the following stipulation.
The Court has issued an Order Setting Mandatory Scheduling Conference ("Order"). The Mandatory Scheduling Conference has been set for September 12, 2013.
The Order states that the Court will be unable to conduct a Mandatory Scheduling Conference until all Defendants have all been served with the summons and complaint.
Plaintiff has not yet served the summons and complaint on Defendant LAURA SANTOS ("Ms. Santos"). On August 19, 2013, Plaintiff's counsel sent a Waiver of the Service of Summons form to Ms. Santos, via Federal Express, along with a letter requesting that she sign the form and thereby accept service of the summons and complaint in this action. Ms. Santos has yet to return the signed form. If Ms. Santos does not return the signed form by October 1, 2013, Plaintiff will proceed to serve the summons and complaint on Ms. Santos by other means.
Defendants' counsel advised the Court that the parties request a 60 day continuance of the Mandatory Scheduling Conference in order for Plaintiff to effectuate service of the summons and complaint on Ms. Santos.
In response, the Court requested that the parties submit a stipulation and insert the date of November 14, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. as the continued date for the Mandatory Scheduling Conference. Any dates relating to the Mandatory Scheduling Conference will be controlled by the November 14, 2013 hearing date. No prior extensions of time for the Mandatory Scheduling Conference have been requested.
