ordered to serve on all parties a copy of this Order and the Standing Order for All Judges
of the Northern District Court Concerning Joint Case Management Statements.
Joint Case Management Statement and Initial Case Management Conference
Parties are required to file a joint case management statement not less than ten court days
before a scheduled case management conference.
The Northern District Court requires civil litigants to meet and confer regarding specified
topics, including alternative dispute resolution and the discovery of electronically stored
information (“ESI”), prior to the filing of the initial joint case management statement.
Civil litigants before this Court must review and comply with the terms of the Northern
District Standing Order For All Judges Concerning Joint Case Management Statements.
In addition, the parties must review in detail the Northern District’s ESI Guidelines and
Checklist for Rule 26(f) conferences. The Court discourages deviation from the ESI
Guidelines absent good cause. Failure to meet and confer regarding the required topics
prior to the initial case management conference, including alternative dispute resolution
and ESI, may, in the reasonable exercise of the Court’s discretion, result in sanctions or
Motions for Summary Judgment
Absent good cause, the Court will consider only one motion for summary judgment per
party. Any party wishing to exceed this limit must request leave of court and must show
good cause. Motions for summary judgment shall comply with Civil Local Rule 7 in all
Courtesy Copies and Proposed Orders
The Court requires courtesy copies only of publicly filed motions and related briefing,
including attachments, exhibits, declarations, and other accompanying material.
Courtesy copies shall be double-sided. The Court discourages the service of courtesy
copies of any other documents, except when specifically requested by the Court.
The quality, condition, and labeling of binders, when used, should be such that the Court
can easily transport and review the binders’ contents. Whenever possible, the spine of a
binder should not exceed three inches in width.
A party may not file a motion regarding a discovery dispute without leave of court. If a
discovery dispute arises, the parties shall meet and confer in good faith to attempt to
resolve the dispute. If the parties are unable to reach a resolution through this process,
they shall file a joint letter brief of eight pages or less that describes each disputed issue.
The joint letter brief must be filed electronically in the Civil Events category of Motions
and Related Filings > Motions – General > Discovery Letter Brief. After the letter brief
is submitted, the Court will advise the parties as to how it intends to proceed.
Discovery disputes may be referred to a Magistrate Judge. If a discovery dispute is
referred to a Magistrate Judge, the Magistrate Judge to whom the dispute is referred will
advise the parties as to how that Judge intends to proceed.
After a Magistrate Judge has been assigned to a case for discovery, the parties in that case
must handle any discovery matters according to the procedures set by that Judge.
