UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
PATRICK COYNE, et al.,
FOUR LEAF CLOVER
INVESTMENTS, LLC, et al.,
Case No. 4:16 CV 1937 CDP
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Upon review of plaintiff Patrick Coyne’s Motion for Equitable Tolling of the
Statute of Limitations and defendants’ response to the motion, I agree with
defendants that to rule the merits of the motion would be to render an advisory
opinion on a question that is not ripe for adjudication. I will therefore deny the
motion, but without prejudice to be refiled if and when the circumstances of this case
require consideration of the issue raised. Further, given the status of the
proceedings in the related case now pending in the Northern District of Illinois and
in the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, and the parties’ agreement that the case
before me be administratively closed pending the outcome of those proceedings, I
will administratively close this case and remove it from the active docket. Any
motion seeking reopening of the case shall state:
the facts and procedural history, including any significant occurrences
in the N.D. Illinois and Seventh Circuit proceedings;
the issues remaining for determination by this Court;
the potential for settlement, and the status of any settlement
whether a Rule 16 scheduling conference is requested;
the status of discovery;
whether significant pretrial motion practice, including the filing of
potentially dispositive motions, is anticipated;
the date by which it is reasonably likely that the case would be ready to
proceed to trial; and
the estimated length of trial.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff Patrick Coyne’s Motion for
Equitable Tolling of the Statute of Limitations  is denied without prejudice.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall
administratively close this action, subject to reopening on a motion filed in
compliance with this Order.
