I/P Engine, Inc. v. AOL, Inc. et al
Consent MOTION to Amend/Correct Scheduling Order with Respect to Expert Disclosure Dates and Memorandum in Support of Consent Motion by I/P Engine, Inc.. (Attachments: # 1 Exhibit 1)(Snow, W. Ryan)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA
I/P ENGINE, INC.,
Civ. Action No. 2:11-cv-512
AOL, INC. et al.,
CONSENT MOTION AND MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF CONSENT MOTION
TO AMEND THE SCHEDULING ORDER WITH RESPECT TO EXPERT
Plaintiff I/P Engine, Inc. (“Plaintiff”) moves this Court for entry of an order amending
three discovery dates in this case. The modification of these deadlines will not delay the parties’
readiness for trial or the trial date. Plaintiff has taken care to avoid any disruption to any
deadlines for submission of materials to, or appearances before, this Court. The dates at issue
affect only the parties’ discovery exchanges rather than deadlines that impact obligations to this
Court. Attached as Exhibit 1 is a Proposed Order for this Court’s consideration. The majority
of the deadlines in this Court’s February 15, 2012 Rule 16(b) Scheduling Order (D.I. 90) will not
be altered under this proposal.
Specifically, Plaintiff requests the following amendments:
Plaintiff requests that this Court extend the service of expert disclosures by the
party with the burden of proof from July 18, 2012 to July 25, 2012.
Plaintiff requests that this Court extend the service of expert disclosures intended
solely to respond to, contradict or rebut evidence on the same subject matter disclosed by another
party under Rule 26(a)(2)(B) or the Pretrial Order from August 20, 2012 to August 29, 2012.
Plaintiff requests that this Court eliminate the service of rebuttal disclosures by
the party bearing the initial burden of proof (currently scheduled for September 4, 2012).
As grounds for this request, Plaintiff states that it has conferred with Defendants
and the parties agree that the proposed extensions will streamline expert discovery.
As noted above, Plaintiff believes that entry of the proposed order will not
interfere with trial preparation, yet will allow for flexibility in scheduling discovery and
developing the case before trial. Defendants do not object to the requested changes.
For the foregoing reasons, Plaintiff requests that this Court enter the proposed order to
modify three discovery deadlines.
