UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
CASE NO. 1:16-CV-506 AWI JLT
ORDER VACATING HEARING AND
ORDER ON PLAINTIFF’S MOTION
FOR EXTENSION OF TIME
ABS GLOBAL, INC.,
(Doc. No. 37)
This is an employment discrimination case. Plaintiff is appearing pro se. Trial in this
matter is set for March 6, 2018, and the pre-trial conference is set for January 10, 2018.
On September 29, 2017, Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment. See Doc. No.
35. Hearing on this motion is currently set for November 13, 2017.
On November 7, 2017, Plaintiff filed a motion for extension of time. See Doc. No. 37.
Plaintiff states that he would like the hearing on the motion moved to December 13, 2017, and that
a “meet and confer” should occur on November 13, 2017. See id. Plaintiff states that he was out
of the country and did not receive the “paper work” until October 18, 2017. See id. Plaintiff also
states that he would like to “meet and confer before summary judgment” and he feels that both
sides are close to a settlement. See id. Plaintiff has not filed a response to the summary judgment
Considering Plaintiff’s pro se status and the fact that he did not receive the moving papers
until nearly three weeks after the papers were filed, the Court will grant Plaintiff additional time
and vacate the November 13, 2017 hearing date. The Court will set a briefing schedule for a new
opposition and reply. If, after reviewing all moving papers, the Court determines that a hearing is
necessary, it will set a hearing date at that time. Otherwise, the motion will be decided on the
papers and without oral argument.
With respect to Plaintiff’s request to meet and confer, it is unknown what Plaintiff means
by this. As a party to the litigation who is representing himself, Plaintiff may contact defense
counsel regarding summary judgment or settlement without the need for Court order or
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
The November 13, 2017 hearing date is VACATED;
Plaintiff’s motion for an extension of time (Doc. No. 37) is GRANTED in part;
Plaintiff shall file either an opposition or notice of non-opposition to Defendant’s summary
judgment motion on or by November 27, 2017; and
Defendant shall file a reply to Plaintiff’s opposition on or by December 4, 2017.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: November 9, 2017
