(PC) Frank E. Peters v. Norris Hollie et al
ORDER APPROVING 105 Fifth Joint Stipulation to Amend Scheduling Order; ORDER VACATING Telephonic Trial Confirmation Hearing, Trial, and Related Deadlines, signed by Magistrate Judge Erica P. Grosjean on 3/31/2021. (Marrujo, C)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
FRANK E. PETERS,
Case No. 1:18-cv-01230-NONE-EPG (PC)
ORDER APPROVING FIFTH JOINT
STIPULATION TO AMEND SCHEDULING
NORRIS HOLLIE, M.D., et al.,
(ECF No. 105)
ORDER VACATING TELEPHONIC TRIAL
CONFIRMATION HEARING, TRIAL, AND
The parties previously filed four stipulations to amend the scheduling order (ECF Nos. 93,
95, 98, & 100), all of which the Court granted (ECF Nos. 94, 97, 99, & 101). On March 30, 2021,
the parties filed a fifth stipulation to amend the scheduling order. (ECF No. 105).
This case was filed in March of 2017 (ECF No. 1). Non-expert discovery has been open
since November 19, 2019 (ECF No. 90), and was originally scheduled to close on May 29, 2020
(id.). Overall, the parties have asked to extend the non-expert discovery cutoff for over a year.
The parties have had ample time to conduct discovery, and the Court is reluctant to
provide any further extensions. Nevertheless, in the abundance of caution, and given the
stipulation, the Court will grant one final extension of the discovery deadlines. Accordingly,
pursuant to the stipulation of the parties (ECF No. 105), the Court will modify the Scheduling
Order (ECF No. 90, as amended by ECF Nos. 94, 97, 99, & 101).
Additionally, given that the Court is extending the dispositive motion deadline, and given
the ongoing judicial emergency in the Eastern District of California, the telephonic trial
confirmation hearing, the trial, and all related deadlines are VACATED. If necessary, the Court
will reset these deadlines after Defendants’ motion for summary judgment has been resolved.
The remaining dates and deadlines in this case are as follows:
May 31, 2021
June 30, 2021
Rebuttal Expert Disclosure
July 30, 2021
August 31, 2021
September 30, 2021
All other terms and conditions of the Scheduling Order remain in full force and effect.
Again, the parties should consider this the final extension of these dates. No further
extensions will be granted, absent extraordinary circumstances.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
