UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA OCALA DIVISION MARISA BRADY, Plaintiff, v. Case No: 5:16-cv-611-Oc-34PRL SYNCHRONY BANK Defendant. ORDER On May 9, 2017, the Court held a telephonic conference to discuss pending motions and general case status. This Order confirms the rulings made on the record at the hearing. First, Plaintiff’s unopposed motion for leave to amend her Complaint to add two additional Defendants (Doc. 18) is GRANTED. The Clerk shall promptly docket the first amended complaint attached as an exhibit to Plaintiff’s motion (Doc. 18-1) and Plaintiff shall serve Defendants pursuant to the requirements of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Because the interests of judicial economy are not served by having the case proceed pursuant to separate case management deadlines, and with the agreement of the parties, the case deadlines set forth in the current Case Management and Scheduling Order (Doc. 12) are STAYED pending further order of the Court. Once service is perfected on the additional Defendants, the parties shall have forty-five (45) days to meet, confer, and file an amended joint case management report. The Court will then lift the stay and enter an amended case management and scheduling order. Because the case deadlines are being stayed, Defendant’s unopposed motion to extend mediation and expert report deadlines (Doc. 19) is terminated as moot. Finally, Defendant’s motion to stay proceedings pending a ruling by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals (Doc. 15) is denied without prejudice to renewal if appropriate after all Defendants have been brought into the case and the parties have filed a joint case management report. DONE and ORDERED in Ocala, Florida on May 10, 2017. Copies furnished to: District Judge Counsel of Record Unrepresented Parties -2-
