IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
VENCIL C. GREEN,
NASARIA CHAMBERLAIN, et al.,
Plaintiff, a prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this civil rights action pursuant to
42 U.S.C. § 1983. Pending before the Court is Defendants’ third motion, ECF No. 38, to modify
the schedule for this litigation. Plaintiff has filed an opposition.
On January 2, 2020, the Court issued an order setting a schedule. See ECF No. 23.
Pursuant to that order, the parties were permitted to conduct discovery through June 8, 2020, and
directed to file dispositive motions within 90 days from that date. See id. On June 29, 2020, the
Court issued an order granting Defendants’ first motion to modify the schedule. See ECF No. 33.
That order extended the time to conduct discovery to September 6, 2020. See id. On October 16,
2020, the Court granted Defendants’ second motion to modify the schedule and re-set the
discovery cut-off date to November 5, 2020. See ECF No. 37. In Defendants’ pending third
motion to modify the schedule, Defendants seek an extension of time for the limited purpose of
conducting Plaintiff’s remote deposition. See ECF No. 38.
Plaintiff opposes, arguing that further extensions are not warranted because
Defendants have thus far failed to adequately respond to his own discovery requests. See ECF
No. 39. To the extent Plaintiff believes his discovery requests have not been sufficiently
addressed by Defendants, Plaintiff’s recourse is to file an appropriate motion to compel, which he
has not done. The Court will grant additional time for an appropriate motion to compel.
Defendants have shown good cause for an extension of time to conduct Plaintiff’s deposition and
the Court will grant Defendants’ requested third modification of the schedule.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
Defendants’ motion, ECF No. 38, for modification of the schedule for this
litigation is granted nunc pro tunc to November 5, 2020.
The parties may take depositions through December 31, 2020.
Written discovery is closed.
Any motions to compel related to written discovery served on or before
November 5, 2020, or depositions taken after November 5, 2020, shall be filed within 30 days of
the deposition cut-off date specified above.
Dispositive motions are due within 90 days of the deposition cut-off date
Dated: November 19, 2020
