IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
Sergeant, Cummins Unit, ADC
INITIAL SCHEDULING ORDER
Defendant has filed his Answer and a Motion requesting permission to depose
Plaintiff. Docs.14 & 15.
The Court finds good cause for granting Defendant's
request. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 30(a)(2)(B). Additionally, the Court will give the parties
120 days to complete discovery and 150 days to file any dispositive motions.1
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT:
Defendant's Motion for Depose Plaintiff (Doc. 15) is granted.
The parties must complete discovery on or before June 13, 2014, and
file any dispositive motions on or before July 14, 2014.
This means that the parties must send their final discovery requests to the opposing side
so that they have the full amount of time, as provided by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, to
respond before the discovery deadline expires. For instance, Fed. R. Civ. P. 33(b)(2) states that a
party has 30 days to respond to interrogatories. Thus, the parties must send their final interrogatories
to the opposing side at least 30 days before the expiration of the discovery deadline.
Dated this 19th day of February, 2014.
