Cenis v. WinCo Holdings, Inc. et al
ORDER GRANTING IN PART STIPULATION TO CONTINUE EXPERT WITNESS DISCLOSURE AND EXPERT WITNESS RELATED DISCOVERY, signed by Magistrate Judge Jennifer L. Thurston on 10/19/2017. (Kusamura, W)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
11 WENDY CENIS, an individual,
Case No.: 1:17-CV-00863-DAD-JLT
ORDER GRANTING IN PART
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE EXPERT
WITNESS DISCLOSURE AND EXPERT
WITNESS RELATED DISCOVERY
14 WINCO HOLDINGS, INC., a corporation;
BRANDON RODGERS, an individual; and
15 DOES 1 through 25, inclusive.
The parties have stipulated to delay expert discovery until after the Court has ruled on the
motion and cross-motion for summary judgment. (Doc. 40) The purpose of the stipulation is to
preserve resources expended on experts until it is determined that they are needed. Id. at 2.
However, the proposed schedule amendments would have expert discovery completed after the
pretrial conference . Id, at 3. This is not the orderly progression of the case the Court requires.
Thus, the Court ORDERS the case schedule amended as follows:
The parties SHALL disclose their experts no later than three weeks after the Court
rules on the competing motions for summary judgment but in no event shall experts be disclosed
The proposed schedule anticipates that there will be no disputes related to experts given that the do not seek to
amend this deadline and, by the time experts are disclosed, the deadline for filing discovery motions will be long-since
expired (Doc. 25 at 3). Though the Court questions the wisdom of this approach, this is the option of the parties.
later than March 16, 2018. Rebuttal experts SHALL be disclosed three weeks thereafter but no
later than April 6, 2018. Expert discovery SHALL be completed four weeks after the deadline for
disclosure of rebuttal experts but no later than May 4, 2018.
No other amendments to the case schedule are authorized.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
