On November 9, 2016, trial in this matter was set for February 6, 2017, in Greenville,
Mississippi. On November 22, 2016, the parties filed a “Joint Motion for Continuation of Trial
Date and Transfer of Trial Setting,” requesting that trial be continued and reset in Aberdeen,
Mississippi. Doc. #208. On December 12, 2016, this Court issued an order granting the motion
to the extent it sought a continuance and deferred the motion to the extent it sought a setting in
Aberdeen. Doc. #216.
On July 21, 2017, following the issuance of a ruling on pending dispositive motions,1
the Court reset trial in this matter for December 4, 2017, in Aberdeen. Doc. #233. Because trial
has been reset for Aberdeen, the parties’ request in the motion to transfer trial to Aberdeen ,
which this Court previously deferred, is DENIED as moot.
On January 14, 2016, United States Magistrate Judge David A. Sanders stayed discovery in this case pending
resolution of the motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction filed by SAME Deutz-Fahr Deutscfhland,
GmbH. Doc. #147. On July 14, 2016, Judge Sanders, acting on a joint motion of the parties, partially lifted the stay
on discovery in order to allow depositions of certain fact witnesses. Doc. #190.
SO ORDERED, this 24th day of July, 2017.
