1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 3 4 DANIELLE PARKER, Plaintiff, 5 6 7 v. 8 COMCAST CABLE COMMUNICATIONS MANAGEMENT, LLC, 9 Case No. 15-cv-05673-TEH ORDER GRANTING LIMITED EXTENSION TO FILE DISCOVERY DISPUTES Defendant. 10 United States District Court Northern District of California 11 After reviewing the parties’ submissions concerning Plaintiff’s request for a one- 12 week extension to file discovery disputes (ECF Nos. 46 & 47), the Court finds good cause 13 to GRANT a limited extension, even though Plaintiff violated this Court’s standing order 14 by filing her request on the date of the deadline she seeks to extend. Defendants have 15 submitted evidence that they produced the disputed documents in January and not, as 16 Plaintiff contends, on the April 3, 2017 discovery cut-off date. In addition, counsel’s 17 failure to plan for a vacation, or to plan discovery so that there was not a last-minute rush 18 just prior to the cut-off date, does not present good cause for extending the deadline. 19 However, the Court will grant the parties until April 20, 2017, to file discovery 20 disputes that they could not have filed earlier because they did not receive the necessary 21 deposition transcripts. This extension shall not prevent the magistrate judge from denying 22 relief if she finds that counsel has been dilatory in scheduling depositions or requesting 23 transcripts and that such delay warrants denial of the requested relief. 24 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 27 28 Dated: 04/17/17 _____________________________________ THELTON E. HENDERSON United States District Judge
