[Doc. # 15.] Apparently because the parties were unable to agree about any of the pretrial submissions, on July 26, 2022, the parties both filed unilateral submissions. [Doc. ## 136-141, 147-148.] Absent jointly submitted pretrial documents compliant with the CMO, this case is not trial ready. Given the foregoing, the parties’ counsel are hereby ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE why they should not be sanctioned for their failure to timely cooperate in the filing of pretrial documents that were due on July 26, 2022. Plaintiff’s counsel’s recent appearance in the case is no excuse for failure to timely comply with this Court’s CMO and the Local Rules or, at least, to seek leave of court for an extension of time. Counsel’s written responses shall be filed by no later than August 5, 2022. The filing of joint pretrial documents compliant with the CMO by that date shall be deemed a satisfactory response. IT IS SO ORDERED. CV-90 CIVIL MINUTES—GENERAL Initials of Deputy Clerk KT
