         This Court conducted a scheduling conference on December 19, 2019. Counsel Kennedy Helm appeared by telephone on behalf of plaintiff. Counsel Chester Wells appeared by telephone on behalf of defendants. Under Fed.R.Civ.P. 16(b), this court sets a schedule for this action.

         1. Amendment to the Parties' Pleadings

         All stipulated amendments or motions to amend shall be filed by April 1, 2020.

         2. Current Status of Consent to the Magistrate Judge Jurisdiction

         Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c), the parties have not decided whether they will consent to conduct all further proceedings in this case, including trial, before a U.S. Magistrate Judge.

         3. Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(a)(1) Initial Disclosures

         Initial disclosures pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(a)(1) shall be completed by January 15, 2020.

         4. Discovery Cutoffs and Limits

         Initial expert witness disclosures by any party shall be served no later than June 5, 2020. Supplemental expert witness disclosures by any party shall be served no later than June 25, 2020. Such disclosures must be made pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(a)(2)(A) and (B) and shall include all information required thereunder. In addition, Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(b)(4) and Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(e) shall specifically apply to all discovery relating to expert witnesses and their opinions. Each expert witness must be prepared fully to be examined on all subjects and opinions included in the designations. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in the imposition of appropriate sanctions, which may include the preclusion of testimony or other evidence offered through the expert witness. In particular, this Court will enforce preclusion of testimony or other evidence if Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(e) is not strictly complied with.

         All non-expert discovery, including motions to compel, shall be completed no later than April 7, 2020. All expert discovery, including motions to compel, shall be completed no later than August 7, 2020.
