SYNGENTA SEEDS, INC., and
VALDOSTA PLANT COMPANY, INC.,
ORDER STRIKING DEFENDANTS’ MEMORANDUM AND STATEMENT
OF FACTS AND AMENDING SCHEDULING ORDER REGARDING
Defendants moved for summary judgment on January 31, 2014, ECF No. 66,
the deadline for filing such motions, ECF No. 47. In support of the Motion for
Summary Judgment, Defendants filed a twenty-nine page Memorandum, ECF No.
67, and a separate fourteen page Statement of Facts, ECF No. 68, for a total of
forty-three pages. Defendants did so in derogation of this Court’s Scheduling and
Mediation Order, ECF No. 20, which explicitly provides that a party must file “a
memorandum of up to 25 pages . . . [and] must include a statement of facts
generally in the form that would be appropriate in an appellate brief . . .. A
statement of facts must not be set out in a separate document.” Accordingly, this
Court strikes the Memorandum and Statement of Facts, ECF Nos. 67 and 68, and
directs Defendants to resubmit a memorandum in compliance with this Court’s
Scheduling and Mediation Order on or before February 10, 2014. The time for
Plaintiff to file a response, fourteen days, shall run from the date Defendants
resubmit a memorandum.
SO ORDERED on February 3, 2014.
