ORDER GRANTING JOINT
STIPULATION TO MODIFY
SCHEDULING ORDER TO CONTINUE
DATE TO FILE MOTION TO AMEND
PLEADINGS OR ADD NEW PARTIES
CITY OF CLOVIS; and JOE
On March 29, 2021, the parties filed a joint stipulation requesting modification of the
Scheduling Order deadline for Plaintiff Dimitrios Kastis to file a motion to amend the pleadings
or add new parties from June 18, 2021 to August 18, 2021. (Doc. 52.) The parties explain that
the extension of time is necessary because new defense counsel will be substituting into this case
and will need time to become familiar with the matter and to respond to Plaintiff’s recently served
discovery. Plaintiff agreed to allow Defendant Joe Alvarado a 60-day extension of time to
respond to the discovery requests provided that Plaintiff is allowed a 60-day continuance of the
deadline to file a motion to amend the pleadings or add new parties. The parties indicate that
additional time is necessary so that Defendants are not prejudiced while the matter is transitioned
to counsel that will be handling the matter. (Id.)
Having considered the parties’ stipulation, and good cause appearing, the request to
modify the Scheduling Order to extend the deadline for Plaintiff to file a motion to amend the
pleadings or to add new parties is HEREBY GRANTED. The deadline for Plaintiff to file a
motion to amend the pleadings or to add new parties is CONTINUED to August 18, 2021.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
