Pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 56(c)(1)(A), "a party may move for summary judgment at any time until 30 days after the close of all discovery." Fact Discovery in this case closed on January 15, 2010 and Expert Discovery closed on March 26, 2010. Thus, any motion for summary judgment should have been filed no later than April 26, 2010 (30 days would have run on April 25, 2010, which was a Sunday, so the deadline was the following business day). Because Defendant's motion was untimely, Plaintiff was under no obligation to file any opposition. However, having reviewed the moving papers and the file herein, and in light of the fact Defendant's motion was only one day late, the court finds it appropriate to vacate the trial and pretrial dates, excuse the late filing of the motion, and schedule briefing and hearing dates for the motion. Therefore, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the previously set trial and pretrial dates are hereby OR D E R, page 1 DOLORES BANUELOS, ) ) Plaintiff, ) ) v. ) ) J. C.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the reference of this case to the court's mediation program is WITHDRAWN, because the court's ADR department reports that it has not been able to schedule any mediation due to Plaintiff's lack of response to their communications. In the event the parties believe a settlement conference would be beneficial, they may file a stipulation requesting reference to a Magistrate Judge for a settlement conference.
