FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Senior District Judge Richard P. Matsch
Civil Action No. 16-cv-00392-RPM
THE LINCOLN NATIONAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY,
ORDER MODIFYING RULE 16 PROCEDURE - ERISA
Because this is an action brought under the Employee Retirement Income
Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”), 29 U.S.C. § 1132(a)(1)(B), no scheduling conference
under Fed.R.Civ.P. 16(b) and D.C.COLO.LCivR 16.1 is necessary. As an alternative, it
That on or before April 25, 2016, counsel for the parties shall file a joint
statement addressing the following matters:
Whether the parties agree upon the contents of the administrative record.
Whether the parties agree upon the standard of review. If there is a
disagreement, state the parties’ positions.
Whether any discovery is necessary. If so, provide a statement of what
discovery is sought and why it is necessary.
Whether there is any reason to proceed in any manner other than to
establish a briefing schedule based on the administrative record.
Whether the parties are in agreement that the submission of the entire
administrative record is not necessary, understanding that those portions
relied upon will be submitted as appendices to the briefs.
The dates for the filing of briefs addressing the issues.
If there is disagreement on any of these matters, the Court will set a conference
to resolve the disputes.
