  IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI GREENVILLE DIVISION TONY YOUNG VS. PLAINTIFF CIVIL ACTION NO.: 4:17CV090-DMB-JMV COAHOMA COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT AND XANDRA BROOKSKEYS, IN HER OFFICIAL PERSONAL AND INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES DEFENDANTS   ORDER THIS CAUSE IS before the Court on Defendant Xandra Brooks-Keys’ Motion to Stay Discovery pursuant to Uniform Local Rule 16(b)(3)(B) on the ground that as an employee and superintendent of the Coahoma County School District, Defendant Xandra Brooks-Key is entitled to qualified immunity from Plaintiff’s claims. Uniform Local Rule 16(b)(3)(B) provides that the filing of "a motion asserting an immunity defense or jurisdictional defense stays the attorney conference and disclosure requirements and all discovery pending the court's ruling on the motion, including any appeal." There having been a motion to dismiss on qualified immunity grounds filed on November 28, 2017, the Court finds Defendant’s Motion to Stay Discovery well taken. Based on the foregoing, it is ordered that Defendant’s Motion to Stay Discovery is granted. IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that all discovery is STAYED pursuant to Uniform Local Rule 16(b)(3)(B). SO ORDERED this 1st day of December, 2017. /s/ Jane M. Virden UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
