Case No: 2:15-cv-500-FtM-99CM TOSHIBA AMERICA INFORMATION SYSTEMS, INC., Defendant. ORDER This matter comes before the Court upon review of the parties’ Motion to Retain Mediator (Doc. 48) filed on February 8, 2017. On September 21, 2015, the parties filed their first Motion to Retain Mediator, seeking to retain Ron Shapiro, who is certified in the Southern District of Florida, as their mediator. Doc. 24. States District Judge Sheri Polster Chappell granted their motion. United Doc. 27. The parties filed the present motion seeking to substitute Ron Shapiro with Dominic Brandy as their mediator because of their scheduling conflicts. Doc. 48. The parties allege that Dominic Brandy also is certified in the Southern District of Florida. Id. Because the parties stipulated to the substitution of their mediator, and Judge Chappell previously granted the parties’ similar motion, the Court finds good cause to grant the present motion and allow the substitution of Ron Shapiro with Dominic Brandy as the parties’ mediator. Docs. 27, 48. ACCORDINGLY, it is hereby ORDERED: 1. The Motion to Retain Mediator (Doc. 48) is GRANTED. 2.

Counsel is responsible for notifying and providing pertinent documents to the mediator as the Middle District of Florida does not serve mediators as a matter of course. DONE and ORDERED in Fort Myers, Florida on this 22nd day of February, 2017. Copies: Counsel of record -2-
