following case management and pretrial order is entered:
trial will begin on September 11, 2017 at 8:30 A.M. in
Courtroom E, 15th Floor, 450 Golden Gate Avenue, San
Francisco, CA 94102. Should a daily transcript and/or
realtime reporting be desired, the parties shall make

prior to the trial date.

that date except by order of the Court for good cause shown.
Motions to compel non-expert discovery must be filed within
the time limits contained in Civil Local Rule 26-2.
Initial expert disclosures shall be made no later than June
13, 2017. Rebuttal expert disclosures shall be made no later
than June 27, 2017. All treating physicians who will provide
opinion testimony beyond that which can be provided by a lay
person must be disclosed as expert witnesses, but they need

26(e)(1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure requires all
parties to supplement or correct their initial disclosures,
expert disclosures, pretrial disclosures, and responses to
discovery requests under the circumstances itemized in that
Rule, and when ordered by the Court. The Court expects that
the parties will supplement and/or correct their disclosures
promptly when required under that Rule, without the need for
a request from opposing counsel.
addition to the general requirements of Rule 26(e)(1), the
parties will supplement and/or correct all previously made
disclosures and discovery responses 28 days before the fact
discovery cutoff date.
Pursuant to Civil L.R. 37-1(b), telephone conferences are
available to resolve disputes during a discovery event, such
as a deposition, where the resolution during the event likely
would result in substantial savings of expense or time.
Privilege logs. If a party withholds information that is
responsive to a discovery request, and is otherwise
discoverable under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, by
claiming that it is privileged, or protected from discovery
under the attorney work product doctrine or any other
protective doctrine (including, but not limited to, privacy
rights), that party shall prepare a "privilege log"
(Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(b)(5)) setting forth the privilege relied
upon and specifying separately for each document or for each
category of similarly situated documents:
name and job title or capacity of the author; 2. The name and
job title or capacity of each recipient; 3. The date the
document was prepared and, if different, the date(s) on which
it was sent to or shared with persons other than its
author(s); 4. The title and description of the document; 5.
The subject matter addressed in the document; 6. The
purpose(s) for which it was prepared or communicated; and 7.
The specific basis for the claim that it is privileged.
privilege log will be produced as quickly as possible, but no
later than 14 days after the discovery responses are due (in
a rolling production, 14 days after each set of documents is
produced), unless the parties stipulate or the Court orders
otherwise in a particular case.
responding to requests for documents and materials under Rule
34 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, all parties shall
affirmatively state in a written response served on all other
parties the full extent to which they will produce materials
and shall, promptly after the production, confirm in writing
that they have produced all such materials so described ...
