IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO Civil Action No. 14-cv-03137-CMA-MEH ALCIN MALVEAUX Plaintiff, v. PUBLIC SERVICE COMPANY OF COLORADO, d/b/a XCEL ENERGY, Defendant. MINUTE ORDER Entered by Michael E. Hegarty, United States Magistrate Judge, on August 27, 2015. Defendant’s Renewed Motion to Modify the Scheduling Order for Extension of Rebuttal Expert Witness Disclosure Deadline [filed August 26, 2015; docket #49] is denied without prejudice for failure to confer pursuant to D.C. Colo. LCivR 7.1(a), which states, Before filing a motion, counsel for the moving party or an unrepresented party shall confer or make reasonable good faith efforts to confer with any opposing counsel or unrepresented party to resolve any disputed matter. The moving party shall describe in the motion, or in a certificate attached to the motion, the specific efforts to fulfill this duty. The motion does not fall under any exception listed in D.C. Colo. LCivR 7.1(b). The Court reminds the parties of their continuing obligations to comply fully with D.C. Colo. LCivR 7.1(a). See Hoelzel v. First Select Corp., 214 F.R.D. 634, 636 (D. Colo. 2003) (because Rule 7.1(a) requires meaningful negotiations by the parties, the rule is not satisfied by one party sending the other party a single email, letter or voicemail).
