Bars v. Sumner Group Inc
ORDER denying pltf's 6 Motion to Compel Rule 26(f) Conference or Permit Discovery Without the Conference and for Protective Order. Signed by Chief Judge J. Leon Holmes on 6/21/11. (vjt)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
No. 4:11CV00397 JLH
SUMNER GROUP, INC., d/b/a
DATAMAX OFFICE SYSTEMS
The plaintiff’s motion to compel Rule 26(f) conference or permit discovery without the
conference and for protective order is DENIED. Document #6. The Court’s initial scheduling order
requires that the Rule 26(f) conference occur by July 25, 2011, and it appears that the defendant is
willing to have a conference by that date. The plaintiff wants a conference earlier, but the defendant
does not believe that it is practicable to have the conference as soon as the plaintiff desires because
defense counsel needs an opportunity to become more thoroughly acquainted with the case, which
is reasonable. While the plaintiff wishes to move this case expeditiously, which is also reasonable,
it does not appear from reviewing the moving papers that there is any urgency about this case that
distinguishes it from the norm.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 21st day of June, 2011.
J. LEON HOLMES
