Trial is currently set to begin on December 13, 2010. Plaintiffs CRS Recovery, Inc., and John Mayberry oppose Laxton's request. Plaintiffs also represent that Laxton refused to be deposed prior to September 1, 2010, the fact discovery deadline, and did not fully cooperate in the scheduling of a settlement conference with Magistrate Judge Zimmerman. The Court does not find good cause to continue the trial date. Laxton has had since early July to obtain new counsel, and there remains an ample amount of time for an attorney to become familiar with his case. Accordingly, Laxton's request is DENIED. Laxton shall confer with Plaintiffs' counsel and schedule his deposition for a date no later than October 15, 2010. He shall also participate in the November 16, 2010 settlement conference scheduled by Judge Zimmerman.
