IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO Civil Action No. 10-cv-00593-WYD-KLM HATTIE LEE TAYLOR, Plaintiff, v. OM FINANCIAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, also known and formerly doing business as FIDELITY AND GUARANTY LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, or F & G INSURANCE, Defendant. _____________________________________________________________________ MINUTE ORDER _____________________________________________________________________ ENTERED BY MAGISTRATE JUDGE KRISTEN L. MIX This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff's Motion to File Amended Complaint [Docket No. 20; Filed August 2, 2010] (the "Motion"). As a preliminary matter, the Motion is single-spaced in violation of D.C.COLO.LCivR 10.1E. It is subject to denial on this basis alone. In addition, Plaintiff's counsel failed to meaningfully comply with D.C.COLO.LCivR 7.1A. requiring that the moving party confer and inform the Court of the opposing party's position. Waiting until the pleading amendment deadline to confer and not giving the opposing party sufficient time to consider the matter offends the spirit and purpose of Local Rule 7.1A. The necessity of meeting a case deadline does not obviate a party's responsibility to meaningfully confer pursuant to the rule. IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Motion is DENIED without prejudice. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Court sua sponte extends the pleading amendment deadline to August 6, 2010. Any future motion to amend Plaintiff's pleadings must comply with case deadlines and all Local Rules or it will be summarily denied. Dated: August 3, 2010
