1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 ROBERT FEIGER, Case No. 1:14-cv-01920-DAD-EPG (PC) 12 13 v. 14 15 16 MARLENE SMITH, et al., Plaintiff, ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANT NATALIE CLARK’S REQUEST FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO SERVE INITIAL DISCLOSURES AND DENYING REQUEST TO CONTINUE INITIAL SCHEDULING CONFERENCE Defendants. 17 18 On January 16, 2017, Defendant Natalie Clark filed a request for a 30-day extension of time 19 to provide Plaintiff with her initial disclosures, and a request to continue the Initial Scheduling 20 Conference 30 days from its current date. (ECF No. 53). Defendant Clark asks for the extension 21 and the continuance because Defendant Clark’s new counsel “has not had adequate time to confer 22 with [Defendant] Clark and review all pertinent documents and information necessary in order to 23 be able to prepare Initial Disclosures by the current deadline of January 17, 2017.” 24 The Court finds good cause to extend the initial disclosures deadline. The Court notes that, 25 as it has granted Defendant Clark an additional 60 days to serve her initial disclosures on 26 Plaintiff, the Court expects Defendant Clark to make meaningful initial disclosures. 27 As to the request to continue the Initial Scheduling Conference, Defendant Clark has not set 28 forth a reason why the Initial Scheduling Conference, which is currently set for March 6, 2017, 1 1 needs to be continued. Therefore, the Court will not continue the Initial Scheduling Conference. 2 Accordingly, based on the foregoing, IT IS ORDERED that Defendant Clark is GRANTED 3 an extension of time of 30 days, through and including February 16, 2017, to serve her initial 4 disclosures on Plaintiff. 5 6 IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendant Clark’s request to reschedule the Initial Scheduling Conference is DENIED. 7 8 9 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: January 17, 2017 /s/ UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
