COME NOW Defendants Glenda Wofford and the Board of Trustees of the Salem Public
Library, by and through their attorneys of record, Baird, Lighter, Millsap & Harpool, P.C., and
move this Court to extend the time in which to disclose experts for the following reasons:
The deadline for dispositive motions in this case is February 25, 2012.
On November 7, 2012, Plaintiff was ordered to appear for deposition no later than
November 30, 2012.
Despite requests for available dates, Defendants have yet to receive dates or take
the deposition of Plaintiff, and therefore are unable to file a motion for summary
judgment at this time.
In addition, Defendants have yet to receive responses to their discovery requests,
which were due November 19, 2012, and are therefore unable to file a dispositive
Plaintiff’s deposition was properly noticed for November 2, 2012, and
rescheduled at Plaintiff’s request for November 1, 2012. On October 31, 2012,
Plaintiff’s counsel informed Defendants’ counsel that Plaintiff would not appear
for her deposition.
On November 5, 2012, this Court granted Plaintiff until November 19, 2012 to
respond to Defendants’ discovery requests, which have not been received.

An extension will not impact the June 24, 2013 trial setting.
WHEREFORE, Defendants, pray this court to grant an extension of time to disclose their
experts and reports until ten days after Plaintiff’s deposition is taken and discovery responses are
received, and an extension of time to file a dispositive motion until March 22, 2013.
