UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF NEW HAMPSHIRE Jesse Stead v. Civil No. 12-cv-512-PB Bank of America, N.A., et al, O R D E R On March 20, 2013, a preliminary pretrial conference was held in this case. Plaintiff appeared on his own behalf; Attorney Jennifer Turco Beaudet appeared for defendants. The court approves defendants’ Proposed Discovery Plan (document no. 10) with amendments to certain deadlines as discussed during the conference. The parties concurred with respect to each of the amendments, with the exception of two matters that the court neglected to address during the conference. First, the proposed deadline for closure of discovery is more than two months after the summary judgment deadline. The court has adjusted that deadline to bring it in line with the schedule as a whole. Second, the proposed deadline for motions to dismiss is identical to the summary judgment deadline. The court has adjusted that deadline to reflect our local rules. The key deadlines in the discovery plan are contained in the chart below. Scheduling Designation Deadline Requests for Admission A maximum of 40 requests by each party to any other party. Depositions A maximum of 10 depositions by plaintiff and 10 by defendants.
