Dizon v. The Hertz Corp.

United States District Court, S.D. California

November 21, 2019

WILLIAM DIZON, Plaintiff,
v.
THE HERTZ CORPORATION, Defendant.

          SCHEDULING ORDER REGULATING DISCOVERY AND OTHER PRETRIAL PROCEEDINGS

          Hon. Jill L. Burkhardt, United States Magistrate Judge.

         Pursuant to Rule 16.1(d) of the Local Rules, a Case Management Conference was held on November 19, 2019. After consulting with the attorneys of record for the parties and being advised of the status of the case, and good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:

         1. The Court understands that parties to litigation often enter into stipulations that a trade secret or other confidential research, development, or commercial information not be revealed or be revealed only in specified way. Any motion for a protective order entering such stipulation(s) in this case shall be filed no later than December 6, 2019. The motion shall comply with Section V. of Judge Burkhardt's Civil Chambers Rules. If the need for a protective order is not initially apparent to the parties and only becomes apparent due to a later development in the case, the parties must seek leave to file a late motion for protective order, supported by good cause which includes an explanation as to why the parties could not have anticipated the need for a protective order.

         2. Any motion to join other parties, to amend the pleadings, or to file additional pleadings must be filed by December 20, 2019.

         3. All fact discovery must be completed by all parties by August 20, 2020. “Completed” means that all discovery under Rules 30-36 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and discovery subpoenas under Rule 45, must be initiated a sufficient period of time in advance of the cut-off date, so that it may be completed by the cut-off date, taking into account the times for service, notice and response as set forth in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Counsel must promptly and in good faith meet and confer with regard to all discovery disputes in compliance with Local Rule 26.1(a). The Court expects counsel to make every effort to resolve all disputes without court intervention through the meet and confer process. If the parties reach an impasse on any discovery issue, counsel must file an appropriate motion within the time limit and procedures outlined in the undersigned magistrate judge's chambers rules. A failure to comply in this regard will result in a waiver of a party's discovery issue. Absent an order of the court, no stipulation continuing or altering this requirement will be recognized by the court.

         Discovery motions must be filed in the time and manner directed by Magistrate Judge Burkhardt (see Judge Burkhardt's Civil Chambers Rules on Discovery Disputes available on the Court's website). All discovery motions must be filed within 30 days of the service of an objection, answer, or response which becomes the subject of dispute, or the passage of a discovery due date without response or production, and only after counsel (and any unrepresented parties) have met and conferred to resolve the dispute and complied with Section IV.B. of Judge Burkhardt's Civil Chambers Rules.

         4. The parties must designate their respective experts in writing by June 25, 2020. The parties must identify any person who may be used at trial to present evidence pursuant to Rules 702, 703 or 705 of the Fed.R.Evid. This requirement is not limited to retained experts. The date for exchange of rebuttal experts must be by July 23, 2020. The written designations must include the name, address and telephone number of the expert and a reasonable summary of the testimony the expert is expected to provide. The list must also include the normal rates the expert charges for deposition and trial testimony.

         5. By June 25, 2020, each party must comply with the disclosure provisions in Rule 26(a)(2)(A) and (B) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. This disclosure requirement applies to all persons retained or specially employed to provide expert testimony, or whose duties as an employee of the party regularly involve the giving of expert testimony. Except as provided in the paragraph below, any party that fails to make these disclosures will not, absent substantial justification, be permitted to use evidence or testimony not disclosed at any hearing or at the time of trial. In addition, the Court may impose sanctions as permitted by Fed.R.Civ.P. 37(c).

         6. Any party must supplement its disclosure regarding contradictory or rebuttal evidence under Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(a)(2)(D) by July 23, 2020.

         7. All expert discovery must be completed by all parties by August 20, 2020. The parties must comply with the same procedures set forth in the paragraph governing fact discovery.

         8. Failure to comply with this section or any other discovery order of the court may result in the sanctions provided for in Fed.R.Civ.P. 37, including a prohibition on the introduction of experts or other designated matters in evidence.

         9. All dispositive pretrial motions, including motions for summary judgment and motions addressing Daubert issues, must be filed by September 17, 2020.[1] Counsel for the moving party must obtain a motion hearing date from Judge Anello's law clerk. The period of time between the date you request a motion date and the hearing date may vary from one district judge to another. Please plan accordingly. Failure to make a timely request for a motion date may result in the motion not being heard.

         10. If appropriate, following the filing of an order ruling on a motion for summary judgment or other dispositive pretrial motion, or in the event no such motion is filed, after the expiration of the deadline set forth in paragraph 9, supra, Judge Anello will issue a pretrial scheduling order setting a pretrial conference, trial date, and all related pretrial deadlines. The parties must review and be familiar with Judge Anello's Civil Chambers Rules, which provide additional information regarding pretrial scheduling.

         11. A Mandatory Settlement Conference will be conducted on June 2, 2020 at 1:45 p.m. in the chambers of Magistrate Judge Jill L. Burkhardt, Edward J. Schwartz U.S. Courthouse, 221 West Broadway, Suite 5140, San Diego, California 92101. Counsel or any party representing himself or herself must submit confidential settlement briefs directly to the magistrate judge's chambers by May 22, ...
