should issues arise concerning the scope of or any other matter regarding the expedited
discovery, the parties shall jointly contact the Chambers of Magistrate Judge Michael E. Hegarty
with any issues or disputes. Accordingly, the Court ORDERS3 as follows:
(1) That Plaintiff’s Unopposed Motion for Hearing on Preliminary Injunction and for
Expedited Discovery (ECF No. 9) is GRANTED as stated herein;
(2) That a hearing on Plaintiff’s Motion for Preliminary Injunction (ECF No. 2) is set for
Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at 9:00 a.m., in Courtroom A601, at the Alfred A. Arraj
United States Courthouse, 901 19th Street, Denver, Colorado;
(3) That Plaintiff is granted leave to conduct the following expedited discovery related to
its Motion for Preliminary Injunction: (i) Plaintiff may depose Defendants and other
relevant witnesses upon four business days’ notice; and (ii) Plaintiff may issue written
discovery to which Defendants shall respond within ten (10) calendar days from the
service thereof; and
Except Defendant Peters, who is currently unrepresented.
The parties are also directed to review and comply with Judge Raymond P. Moore’s Civil Practice Standards
governing evidentiary hearings.
(4) That the parties shall jointly contact the Chambers of Magistrate Judge Michael E.
Hegarty with any expedited discovery issues.
